A youth football team in Texas just had their season cut short after a video went viral that showed the team of 11 and 12 year olds kneeling during the national anthem.
According to the Beaumont Enterprise, the Beaumont Bulls season ended early due to disagreements between parents, coaches and organization leadership.
A few weeks ago head coach Rah-Rah Barber was removed from his position after creating a “hostile mood.”
Bulls President Seterria Anderson said the team had to stop playing after the Bulls were left short on players from some quitting the team.
Anderson said Barber divided the team by singling out and pressuring the players who chose not to take part in the protest at the September 17th game.
Following the protest, “people from all over the world” have sent Anderson and Barber threatening phone calls, messages and posts on social media.
A video of the young boys protesting before the game can be seen below:
