High School Football Team Teaches NFL What Patriotism Looks Like

Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest, CA. The Burros Varsity football team with their tribute to America on their homecoming night before the game.

Every football player walked onto the field carrying an American flag as God Bless the USA played on the stadiums’ PA system.

Members of the U.S. military stationed in Iraq viewed the video and were appreciative of the young men as they noted the effect that the video had on their spirits.

“Just watched this video from Iraq a few minutes ago and I couldn’t be more proud of Y’all,” Justin Smith wrote. “Great job boys, way to stand up for your country and show your appreciation for being an American. It makes it a lot easier for us overseas knowing we have support from guys like you. Shoutout to your head coach and coaching staff as well. I tip my cap to the parents, family, and friends of these players. Makes me proud to call Ridgecrest home. Way to go guys.”
