DUNKIRK-Freshman Lebron Fisher was the lone Jamestown Red Raider on the Junior Varsity Football Team to take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem on Thursday night.
Fisher’s mother, Crystal Graham, stood behind a fence just several hundred feet away from where her son was kneeling down behind some of his teammates.
“I am very proud of my son as he did it alone,” said Graham. “He’s got the heart of a lion. I wouldn’t expect anything less.”
The movement to take a knee during the national anthem was started by former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick during a 2016 preseason game. An NFL Network reporter was the first to spot him.
