Instead of going to practice, Queen Creek High School football players recently showed their support for the family of Todd Heap by giving #hugsforholly outside the Queen Creek Target and Harkins movie theater.

Heap, who played tight end for 12 seasons in the NFL and finished his career with the Arizona Cardinals, was moving his truck in the driveway of his Mesa home in April when authorities say he accidentally struck and killed his 3-year-old daughter, Holly. A HugsFromHolly.com page was created by the Heap family, which asked people to honor Holly’s memory by wearing pink and spreading love through random acts of kindness on May 3.

Travis Schureman, Queen Creek Bulldog head varsity football coach, gave his 80 players time off from practice to honor Holly Heap by greeting people for about an hour at the Queen Creek Marketplace. Then they went to a local park and encouraged Little League ballplayers. Schureman’s brother played on the same Mesa Mountain View High football teams as Heap in the 1990s.
