Prayer Breaks Out At Soddy Daisy Football Game

Despite Caution From County School Superintendent

Friday, October 22, 2010

Prayer broke out after all at the Soddy Daisy High School football game on Friday night.

After the Freedom From Religion group of Madison, Wis., protested, County School Supt. Dr. Jim Scales instructed Soddy Daisy High School Principal John Maynard to no longer have prayers over the loudspeaker prior to football games.

Mr. Maynard said he would comply.

The Trojans were on the road against Rhea County in Dayton on Friday night.

A fan gave this account:

"The stadium announcer made a respectful remark that everyone should be aware of what had taken place in the Hamilton County School system this week and to honor Dr. Jim Scales' wishes they were asking anyone who wished to participate that they could meet on the field with the players of both teams for prayer.

"Both sides of the stadium emptied and joined the teams, bands and cheerleaders for a heart-felt prayer led by a female student from Rhea County High School."
