NFL protest moves to high school

This was only a matter of time, of course, but now the civil rights protest in the NFL begun by San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick has moved onto high school fields, as well.

Our sports writer and columnist Marcus Hartman wrote about what happened Friday night at Dayton’s Dunbar High School game: “Dunbar beat Meadowdale 46-0 at Welcome Stadium, but what happened before the opening kickoff is likely to resonate more. Several Wolverines took a knee and raised both hands during the national anthem, joining a group of athletes nationwide who have made similar actions this fall.

“Last week, Dunbar senior receiver Chris Jackson told the newspaper that team captains had discussed what they could do to join the movement. ‘As long as we get the point across for what we’re trying to represent as players and a team, we want our nation to become better and equal as one society,’ Jackson said.”
