Bobby Gleason wore the number 63 as a member of the the Huntington High School Football team.

Saturday night Drew Cummings proudly wore the number that once belonged to his friend.

"Well I knew he called and said he was going to try to get 52 or 63 and as it turned out he got 63," said Jim Cummings. He spent Saturday night at Laidley Field to cheer on his son Drew.

Number 52 is the number that belonged to Chris Withers. Bobby and Chris died as the result of a car accident in Opp, Alabama. The pair had just graduated from Huntington High School. They were returning from a trip in Florida.

"I'm just glad I can show support and for Chris and Bobby when I can," said Drew Cummings.

"I hope he is up there watching me."
