DEERFIELD TWP., Ohio -- Kings High School has many Knights, but there can be only one king.

At homecoming this year, to his surprise, Chad Handorf took the crown.

Handorf is no stranger to the gridiron: He manages the football team, always there to keep people motivated.

He asked his queen, Emily Lima, to their homecoming last week after years of friendship.

"Chad is awesome," she said. "Chad was always my go-to buddy. We would just hang out all day, and he became my best friend."
