Two football players from an Ohio school are no longer suspended from the football team after they ran on the field prior to the game carrying a “thin blue line” flag and a “thin red line” flag.
Before Little Miami’s game on Sept. 11, defensive back Brady Williams and linebacker Jared Bentley showed their patriotism by running onto the field carrying pro-firefighters and pro-police flags.
The Little Miami School District decided to suspend the boys for carrying these flags on the field after they were told not to bring them out on the field.
That suspension has been lifted after a public outcry.
