The Greenwood (Midland, Texas) football team decided earlier this season that its players would come out for games carrying various flags for branches of the military and other organizations in response to teams around the country that were taking a knee for the national anthem, according to KCBD.

The scene was especially poignant for Greenwood’s entrance Thursday night on the eve of Veterans Day.

Greenwood’s season ended with a 49-42 playoff loss to Bushland.
