The inquest into the death of 19-year-old Nyall Brown from Cromer is set to begin on Thursday.
Nyall took his own life in May last year.
Known as Smiley Nyall, his parents Tracey and Mearl described him as a 'deeply sensitive, cheeky chappy who wore his heart on his sleeve'.
Previously Pete Gascoyne, Nyall's PE teacher and football coach at Cromer High School, praised his abilities and sportsmanship.
He said: 'Nyall was at the heart of that team - for five years he was the engine. I respected him.
'Nyall always did his share and more. He would drop to the ground with exhaustion and then get up again.
'As captain he led by example.'
