A North Georgia high school decided to run out onto the field Friday night carrying American Flags as a patriotic message to start the game.

The Fannin County High School Rebels ran out together holding dozens of large American Flags as they entered the field for their game against Greater Atlanta Christian School.

Though the Rebels lost the game 55-7, their display of patriotism, organized by coaches, parents, and players has resonated with their community.


The video posted by Sonya Standridge has more than 500 shares and many comments about patriotism, and what the display meant to armed forces members.
