  • It was an emotional start to the football season for South High School in Minneapolis.
    The team paid tribute to number 17— wide receiver Sha-Kym (shah-KIM') Adams who drowned in Lake Nokomis just a few short weeks ago.
    The 15-year-old was entering his sophomore at South High and was swimming with teammates after football practice. Those teammates tried to save Adams who went underwater while swimming to a dock.
    Wednesday night, his family was called to the football field where parents Sharrod Rowe and Kimberly Adams were presented with Sha-Kym's jersey and a letterman's jacket inscribed with his name.
    KMSP-TV says the opposing team also offered its support. Eden Prairie cheerleaders had roses for Sha-Kym's family. Before the kickoff, fans, teammates and family observed a moment of silence in remembrance of the teen.
