Bobcats Pop the Question “Hoco2k16?”

We are all familiar with the back to school tradition of getting up the nerve, or anxiously waiting to ask or be asked to homecoming. Each year we see hoards of peers popping the question, but this year students at RHS are getting creative, whether they’re asking a bae or a bestie. Here’s some hoco inspo, in case you’re late asking your date, from this year’s most memorable proposals:
