Two Ohio high school students, Brady Williams and Jarad Bentley who were earlier suspended from their team for carrying flags to the football field have just received college awards.
Williams and Bentley had carried a “Thin Blue Line flag” and a “Thin Red Line Flag” respectively onto the field. After doing this, the school suspended Williams and Bentley from the team.
The Little Miami Board of Education maintained that it understood the students’ zeal to support their first responders on the anniversary of 9/11; however, they were suspended from the team since they failed to obtain permission from school officials.
Despite Williams and Bentley’s “insubordination,” the board decided that their actions weren’t politically motivated and overturned their suspension.

A local non-profit group known as “Holiday for Heroes” revealed that it would be awarding Williams and Bentley a scholarship for their statement. This is good news for these Ohio high school students.
According to the group, Brady and Jarad are PATRIOTS as they did something that revealed that they are far beyond their years. These students stood up for what they believe in and their action reminded us how we felt 19 years ago. The amount the scholarship worth has not yet been disclosed.
