A football team in Pennsylvania held a moment of silence before a recent game to honor the servicemembers who died in Afghanistan.
“Before Friday’s game against Beth-Center, 13 players from California Area High School took the field carrying American flags to honor the 13 military members who were killed in an attack at Kabul’s airport,” KDKA reported Saturday.
Facebook user Michelle Volosin Rollins posted video footage of the football team running onto the field as the crowd cheered.
“Ladies and gentlemen, at this time please direct your attention to center field. Members of the Trojan Football Team are honoring the 13 servicemen and women killed in action last week during America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan,” the announcer said:
“At this time we would like to take a 13 second moment of silence to honor those brave individuals,” he continued as the crowd quieted.
Social media users expressed their gratitude to the players for the tribute, one person writing, “Thank you! It’s so nice to see a local school support our troops and America.”
“The school, coaches, community, staff and those young men carrying our flags should be very proud! Thank you for your respect and kindness! God Bless the USA!” another commented.
The KDKA report said California Area later won the game against Beth-Center 36 to 30.
