High School Player Booted for Praising God, Reinstated

An Arizona high school football player ejected from a game after giving thanks to God will be allowed to play in his next game. According to CBN, Pedro Banda, a 17-year-old running back, was put on a one-game suspension after scoring a touchdown, touching his face mask and pointing his finger to the sky. The Arizona Interscholastic Association overturned the penalty against Banda after reviewing game footage. They said pointing his finger to sky and looking upward did not constitute “excessive celebration.” The decision to overturn the suspension means that Banda will be able to play in the school’s first playoff games in 25 years.
