PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) – Here is what happens when two schools put aside a rivalry to support a student fighting leukemia.
Orange was the color in Piqua as the Indians hosted the Troy Trojans on Valentine’s Day.
Orange t-shirts were sold for $10.00.
The sales supported Piqua sophomore Brandon Burnside who is in need of a bone marrow transplant.
A check was presented to Brandon’s family Tuesday for more than $14,000.

The shirts are still available. Contact the Piqua High School Athletic Office for more information.
