North Georgia high school football team runs onto field carrying American flags
A North Georgia high school football team ran out onto the field carrying American flags in what the school superintendent is calling a “unifying moment.”
Fannin County High School played Greater Atlanta Christian School Friday night.
Superintendent Michael Gwatney said the “patriotic display” was organized by the team, coaches and parents.
“It was an awesome and unifying moment for the audiences on both sides of our stadium and reminded us that no matter what team we support, we are all Americans,” he said.
Gwatney said that while Fannin County may have lost the game, “our players certainly won the hearts of our community with the display of patriotism.”
The superintendent said the players ran out with the flags particularly as a sign of support for veterans and those currently serving in the armed forces.
