CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio high school has reinstated two football players after they were suspended for defying administrators by carrying flags at the start of a game that signaled support of law enforcement.

Video shows the players for Ohio’s Little Miami High School led their teammates in running onto the field at the home game Friday, the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Monday.

They carried flags colored with a blue stripe and red stripe that signal support for police and other law enforcement.

The school said a ceremony held before the game honored the people killed in the 9/11 attacks.
