Mountain View High School's senior night was a success dedicating the night to one player's mom who's battling breast cancer.

Their field was covered with pink as players, coaches, fans and even marching band members wore the color for breast cancer awareness.

The "pink out" had been planned for awhile, but last week Julie Habenicht's son, Bobby, made a plan to sell T-shirts reading "Habenicht Hope."

She was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer 11 months ago.

She says she is in awe of the outpouring of support her and her family have received.

"To be 16 - 17 years old and be so aware of what's going on is just amazing that they support one another and want to help," Habenicht said.

Bobby is playing in his last home game for the Mountain View Mavericks.

The team wore pink underneath their jerseys in the game.

"These boys have been there for him since the diagnoses and it just really makes ya feel loved," Habenicht said.

The whole Habenict family was out tonight supporting both Julie and Bobby.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart it really means so much they've been troopers through all of this," she said. "And like I told them when I was diagnosed - we got this - ya know, there's no other option and they have been so positive through all of it. So thank you and I love each and every one of them."

And pink must be Mountain View's lucky color...the team crushed Nampa 58 to 3 tonight.
