Before the game, one of the players, Joey Zenobi, told ABC affiliate WZVN-TV in Fort Myers they were playing for the victims.

"We came into the game knowing we had to give it our all to get the win, and that's what we did," Zenobi said, according to WZVN-TV. "And now we get to bring the trophy back to the best high school in America."

Some players also honored slain student Joaquin Oliver by using yellow hair dye on the tops of their hair, WZVN-TV reported.
