Michigan Football Coaches Under Fire for Inviting Opponents to Pray After Game

The nation’s largest secular legal organization is pressuring a Michigan school district to bar its high school football coaches from participating in team prayers after a junior varsity coach allegedly invited an opposing team to join in prayer after a game.After the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in August that a Washington state high school football coach does not have the right to pray at midfield after football games, the Freedom From Religious Foundation is now trying to pressure Bridgeport High School to force its football coaches to stop praying with their players.FFRF, a Wisconsin-based group that advocates for a strict separation of church and state and has over 700 members in Michigan, sent a letter to Bridgeport Spaulding School District Superintendent Carol Shelby late last month to complain about coaches on the Bridgeport High School junior varsity football team who invited members of the opposing team to join their prayer gathering at a game on Sept. 7.
