Her silver hoops and purple beads rock with each clap she makes.

Roxanne Wright, a proud Brahma football mother, has not missed a game since her son started playing for the team his freshman year.

"I go to every single game, in town or out of town," Wright said. "I've been doing that for the last four years of his high school career."

The 36-year-old single mother said she brings her son and daughter to see their big brother play.

"My hopes for my son are that somebody will see his talents and help him get to the next level of his education," Wright said. "I just want him to be happy and go to school."

At a playoff game last season, the mother said there was a moment her son, Quinton Wright, 17, was almost seriously hurt.

"I saw him sway to the side and I knew he was hurt," Wright said. "He was determined to finish the rest of the game."

She admitted to having no trepidations about her son playing on the team because of his size at the start of his high school football career.

"He's a big boy and strong," Wright said. "I left that out of my mind."

Wright said talking about football with her son has brought them closer.

"I work six days a week," Wright said. "I take off my Fridays to go watch him play. I love my Brahma."
