Ohio school reinstates football players who had police flags

National News

CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio high school reversed the suspension of two football players who defied administrators by carrying flags that signal support for law enforcement at the start of a game.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the players for Ohio’s Little Miami High School led their teammates in running onto the field at the home game Friday, the 19th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The school said on Monday it suspended the students but reversed the decision on Tuesday.

In a statement, the president of the school board says the school found the players’ actions were not political, but did show insubordination. 

The school says a pregame ceremony honored the victims of the attacks.
