High school football players "take a knee"

A pair of high school football players on opposing teams in Sherman, Texas, dropped on their knees in prayer after a recent game. They prayed for the recovery of one player's mother, who is seriously ill. Sherman High School senior Gage Smith and West Mesquite player Ty Jordan know each other well. Smith was aware of Jordan's mother's condition, and asked Jordan to pray with him after the game.

"When you're playing the game, you're playing to win and the other team is the enemy," Smith said. "But afterwards you still have respect for the other opponent. I just had a moment with him, praying over him, his mom, and his family."
