A special needs student at L.D. Bell High School in Hurst will have a day to remember after taking home the title of homecoming king.
Cerebral palsy put senior Chris Ramsey in a wheelchair. But the only thing that slows him down is his chair's top speed.
And on Friday afternoon his friends and classmates lifted him up. Chris won the crown out of a field of 60 and then six finalists.
"I'm feeling good, it's just a little overwhelming," he said.
Yolanda Ramsey said she and her son were both ready for whatever happened. He was prepared to be happy for whoever won.
"He doesn't let his ability define who he is and he always says that any kid with a disability can do whatever they want to do if they put their mind to it. And, I let him know you can. You can do whatever you want to do," she said.
Ryan Mitchell couldn't have been more excited for his friend. He said Chris is the reason the football team plays, fights and wins.
"Chris has been my brother for four and a half years and I love him more than anything else. There is no one who deserves this more," he said.
