After NFL protesters demonstrated during the national anthem, public displays of unity and patriotism are trickling down to school districts. At Edgewood High School, football players from that school and Ross High School came together for a show of solidarity before Friday night's homecoming game. Both teams held a 5,000-square-foot American flag at midfield to show their support for people in the military.  Edgewood Athletic Director Greg Brown said it wasn't a political stunt. “We really haven’t brought a lot of publicity to that. It’s political in nature. We try to keep it professional," Brown said. "We like to do what should be done with the National Anthem, and that’s to honor it."
