Ohio high school students awarded college scholarships for carrying flags onto football field


Two Ohio high school students have been awarded scholarships after being briefly suspended from their football team for carrying flags onto the field during a game on September 11th. 

The Little Miami students, Brady Williams and Jarad Bentley, had been told by the school district to not bring flags on the field. But they did it anyway.

  • Williams – the son of a sheriff’s deputy – carried a “Thin Blue Line flag”.
  • Bentley – the son of a fireman – carried a “Thin Red Line Flag”.

A local non-profit group called “Holiday for Heroes” said it is awarding Williams and Bentley a scholarship for their statement.
