I Stand for the National Anthem

I Stand for the National Anthem Buddy Smith AFA Senior Vice-President MORE

As the football season rolls on, more and more athletes are disgracing themselves and embarrassing their coaches and teams by thumbing their noses at the national anthem.

As a result of San Francisco 49ers football player Colin Kaepernick shameful antics of kneeling during the national anthem, even junior high students are now following the pied piper and engaging in the same unpatriotic antics.

One college football player is not ashamed to show his pride in America...even to the point of standing alone.

Last week, Millikin University linebacker Conner Brewer was the only player from his private Illinois university team to stand on the sideline and proudly respect the playing of the national anthem.

His teammates cowered in the locker room, choosing to hide away during the playing of our nation's most beloved refrain.

Conner's stand is a testament to the bravery and patriotic pride of those who defended Fort McHenry the night before Frances Scott Key wrote our nation's rallying cry.

Let's not let Conner stand alone. Make a statement that our national anthem is worth standing for!

Take action: Sign our pledge today, letting everyone know, "I Stand for the National Anthem."

We will let Conner know that you and thousands of other patriotic Americans are proud of "The Star-Spangled Banner!"
