Coach Joe Kennedy leads by example. Since 2oo8, after each game, he heads to the 50 yard line and says a quick prayer for the school and the football players. Initially it was only him, spending a few moment alone in prayer, but over the years students have joined him in his ritual.

Coach Kennedy see this as a violation of his Constitutionally protected right to pray and has decided to demonstrate to his students how to stand up for what they believe.
