Football Official Flags End Zone Prayer

A Washington state high school football player was flagged for kneeling and pointing to heaven after scoring a touchdown.

Reportedly, the line judge said the running back was attempting to bring attention to himself. But it seems to me that he was not doing that at all. In fact, he was doing the opposite of that. Running back Ronnie Hastie “I do that to give glory to my Heavenly Father, Jesus. He gives me the strength. He’s the one who gives me these abilities in the first place.”

Is a momentary kneel and pointing up really an excessive celebration? Or is there something else going on here?

I’ve seen all sorts and manner of touchdown celebrations, this one, to me, seems about the least offensive.

What do you guys think?
