Tackling Prayer in High School Football

Trisha Hoffman - published on 08/14/14

Randal Hill supports teams that seek divine help.

An atheist group could sue a Georgia School District, if Chestatee High School football coaches don’t stop promoting prayer during football team functions. The Appignani Humanist Legal Center sent a letter to the Superintendent stating "We have been informed that the school’s football coaches have been using their position to promote Christianity on thefootball team by integrating Bible verses into functional team documents and team promotion."

If the school doesn’t separate church from state, it could be sued for damages.

Former NFL pro football player Randal Hill tells Fox News he’s pro-prayer.
