Two Ohio high school football players were suspended from the team after they ran onto the field on 9-11 with thin blue line and thin red line flags in support of the anniversary.

The thin blue line flag represents support for police officers and the thin red line flag represents support for fire fighters.

For the record:
** 50 police officers were killed in New York in the 9-11 attacks.
** 343 fire fighters were lost in the attacks.

The boys were honoring 9-11 victims and their fathers who work as a police officer and a fire fighter.

One player, Brady Williams, whose father is a police officer said he wanted to honor the all the cops who lost their lives on 9-11.

Jarad Bentley, whose father is a firefighter, carried the thin red line on the field and waved it before the game.

Athletic Director Gregory Power kicked the two boys off the team indefinitely!
