STANDING UP BY KNEELING WORKS FOR AXSON…

February 2nd, 2017

Good on Rodney Axson. The young man took a national protest movement—launched by NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick last August—local when he followed Kaepernick’s example and took a knew during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. By doing so, Axson demonstrated his character and others have noticed.

Jen Steer, reporting in Brunswick football player threatened for kneeling during anthem gets full scholarship for WJW, writes:

The Brunswick High School football player who was threatened after kneeling during the national anthem received a full scholarship.

Rodney Axson Jr. signed a letter of intent to attend Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina on National Signing Day Wednesday morning.

I sincerely hope that others learn from Axson’s bravery.
