High Schoolers Decide To Show Everyone What They Think About The National Anthem - Leave The Crowd Speechless

While professional ball players making millions of dollars feel the world is too unjust, there's an entire high school football team in a small Michigan town who stand for respect. When they found out the National Anthem would not be playing before their game, the teammates stood up, put their hands over their hearts, and sang it.

The Lapeer Lightning's of Carman-Ainsworth High School in Flint Township wouldn't accept it when they were not given the opportunity to salute the flag before their football game. When the announcer said the anthem wouldn't be played, the young freshmen lined up to sing it on the sidelines.

"We're just super proud of our guys to overcome that situation and take it upon themselves to sing the national anthem. We couldn't be prouder," said athletic director Shad Spilski.

Citizens have been widely divided on the issue of the National Anthem. While so many people use the excuse of everything wrong in America to sit out the anthem, others argue that saluting the flag and those who have fought for our freedom is what's right with the country.

"A lot of teenagers would be embarrassed to do that. I know I don't like to hear myself sing," said head coach Bryan Sahr. "I'm very, very proud of them."
