As everyone stood up the baseball team Stevenson was on, wearing blue and white, filed into the gymnasium followed by his mother, father and younger brother.

His father, Craig Stevenson, gave an emotional speech and told the crowd that his son loved the Blue Jays.

“I love and miss you Quinn,” his father said with tears.

“Wow, you guys are just amazing, said Bonny Stevenson, his mother.

Friends dedicated songs by Rascal Flatts, “My Wish”, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Under the Bridge,” to Quinn Stevenson.

Principle Tom Sargeant gave a speech on how he bonded with the teen who dreamed of being a TSN broadcaster one day.

“He already is my favorite TSN broadcaster,” Sargeant said.

Darren Dutcyshen from TSN’s SportsCenter gave a special tribute to Quinn Stevenson from the SportsCenter desk.

The crowd gave a big cheer while stomping their feet and clapping their hands which echoed throughout the gymnasium.

“That’s how much we love your son,” said one of his friends.
