The players asked the school permission prior to the game and were denied and told if they defied the order, there would be consequences.

“We did not want to place ourselves in a circumstance where another family might want a different flag to come out of the tunnel, one that may be [one that] many other families may not agree with from a political perspective,” said Gregory Power, Superintendent of Little Miami.

Players Williams and Bentley heard from the athletic director Monday afternoon and received an indefinite suspension. “We can’t have students who decide to do something anyway after they’ve been told that they shouldn’t be doing it,” said Power.
