Dillon teacher and coach Steve Vezina is well known for always wearing shorts on the sidelines of football games — no matter how cold it gets.
He is also renowned for his “Game Day” songs, raps and poems that inspire his players to victory.
On Friday, the students and faculty at Beaverhead High School turned the tables on the coach who is battling prostate, colon and liver cancer.
One day before the Beavers play Billings Central for the Class A state football title in Billings, a video meant to inspire Vezina was posted on YouTube.com.
It features a trip through the high school halls lined with students and faculty members supporting Vezina to the song “Roar” by Katy Perry.
Vezina has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy treatment in Salt Lake City, but he will be in Billings for the big game.
“I wouldn’t miss the state title game for anything,” Vezina said Friday night.
A fund has also been set up to support Vezina and his family to help with the expenses of fighting the disease. The original goal on gofundme.com was $5,000. As of Friday night, that fund has topped $25,000.2 comments
