Arkansas State University Football Player Fighting Back Against Cross Decal Removal!
According to "christiannews.net" A member of the Arkansas State University (ASU) football team is fighting back against a recent decision to order players to remove a cross decal from their helmets over a complaint that the symbol is unconstitutional. As previously reported, the decal was meant to serve as a memorial to former player Markel Owens and equipment manager Barry Weyer, who were both tragically killed this year—Owens in a car crash and Weyer in a shooting. Both men were professing Christians, so team members chose a cross for the decal as they thought that the use of the symbol was fitting. The decal bears the initials of Owens and Weyer, and is voluntary for any player who desires to affix the memorial to their helmet.
