SOURE : https://goo.gl/eAxLS4 High School Football Players ‘Take A Knee,’ So Texas Coach Takes Something Of TheirsTwo self-entitled high school football players from Texas decided to “take a knee” while the National Anthem was played before their game on Friday night. Their disrespectful protest was short-lived, though, because their coach quickly took something of theirs in response.Cedric Ingram-Lewis and Larry McCullough should have known that Texans have no patience for underage thugs who disrespect the country and flag which brave men and women have fought and died to protect, but the two high school football players learned that lesson the hard way. Before their game on Friday night, the pair took a knee while the National Anthem was played.Ingram-Lewis, a sophomore, said the topic of protesting had come up in the locker room before and his cousin McCullough, a senior, even announced he would kneel via social media. However, lest any of his players think he was ambiguous on the subject or might look the other way if they decided to kneel during the anthem, head coach Ronnie Mitchem explicitly told players that they were not to kneel.Mitchem is a former Marine and pastor who started the church-based football program six years ago at Victory & Praise Christian Academy in Crosby, Texas. Given his status as a veteran, he instituted a zero-tolerance policy for his players when it comes to protests of the National Anthem. “He told us that disrespect will not be tolerated,” said Ingram-Lewis after kneeling on Friday. “He told us to take off our uniform and leave it there.”Two high school footballers in Texas have been kicked off their team for protesting during the national anthem.
