Prep athletes in the state of North Carolina haven't been able to play their spring sports, but in McDowell County, these youngsters have not been forgotten.

People of Marion are honoring the spring sport seniors at McDowell High School by putting pictures onto banners that hang up and down mainstreet.

There are 30 in all with one player from baseball, softball, soccer, track, golf, or tennis on each side of the banner..

This has been a collaborative effort--with the McDowell News, McDowell High School and the city showing their support for these Titan athletes.

McDowell High School athletic director, Keith Ledford, says these young people should be honored because "This group has given back so much over the years. It's sad for them go to out this way. I'm glad that we could do something as a community to show our support for them because they've done so much for us."

The banners will stay up for about a month, and then they'll be given to the seniors.
