The Hoffman Estates High School wrestling and cheerleading teams made their Valentine's Day special by sharing their love and their school spirit with residents of the Alden Poplar Creek Rehabilitation and Health Center in Hoffman Estates.
The cheerleaders performed cheers and the school's fight song while the wrestlers sang "Let Me Call You Sweetheart."

The teams also passed out valentines made by the local elementary school students.
"The cheerleaders dedicated themselves to maintaining their skills as well as a positive image within their school and community," said head cheerleading coach Brittany London. "As a coach, nothing has been more rewarding than having the opportunity to watch these individuals grow into both talented athletes as well as outstanding citizens."
Following the fight song, the teams helped to pass out snacks and had a chance to socialize with the residents.
"It so gratifying to see some of the wrestlers come out of their shells and really interact with the residents," said head wrestling coach Tony Ganas. "We have an obligation to teach our student athletes to be well-rounded citizens. Participating in activities like this exemplifies our vision."
