Florida High School ‘Pink Out’ Soccer Game Honors Mother of Cancer Coach

SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. (WESH) – Satellite High School Scorpion’s colors are red and black, but on Friday it was all pink.

Friday night’s Pink Out game in Satellite Beach, Fla. Honored Beth Taylor who was at the center of an off-field battle.

“It’s not just about me. These are all survivors. All the warriors. All these people who fought, ”Taylor told our affiliate WESH 2 News.

Taylor is the mother of Satellite High School football coach Ted Kimmey.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. After seeing how her son pushes his players to do their best on the pitch, she asked him if he could do it for her in the hospital.

“I need you to tell me what they are doing to overcome their challenges because I need help to overcome mine,” Taylor told her son.

“I told her sometimes overtime was needed and told her she was going to fight until the last whistle,” Kimmey said.

That’s what Taylor does. She still has a few chemo sessions to do but she knows she has a whole team behind her.

“They have no idea how much they’ve really helped me, how they inspired me with their own season and how to get through it. It just means to me the world to thank them, ”Taylor said.

Taylor’s bond with this team doesn’t end with the Pink Out game. Taylor said she is due to finish chemotherapy early next year and will take all the players and her son with her throughout this final trimester.
