Football Player Stands Alone to Honor America

Connor Brewer is fiercely loyal to his college football team. But he is also fiercely loyal to the United States of America.

So when the Millikin University football team decided to protest the national anthem by remaining inside the locker room – instead of on the sidelines - Connor was faced with a decision.

Would he join his teammates in their university-approved safe space or would he stand on the sidelines and honor America?

 Connor chose to stand – alone.

One of my readers sent me a photograph of what transpired on Oct. 15th at the private Illinois university. It was deeply moving.
