Football stands filled, but there's no game

When the football team at East Coweta High School in Georgia prays before a game, Coach John Small prays with them. Recently the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained to school officials that Small was leading the prayers, but the team says their prayers are student-led, in compliance with federal law. As you can see from the photo below, that wasn't the end of the story.

Hundreds gathered at East Coweta Football Stadium recently even though their was no opposing team, and no game. Everyone came to pray."Nothing that has happened in the past few weeks was a surprise to God," said Coach Small, as he encouraged the crowd. "I would encourage you that when adversity comes your way, you stand up. You look at it, and say 'God, you got this, don't you?'"
