College football player KICKED OFF team for not KNEELING during his TEAMMATES

Reading PA -- Albright College has kicked backup quarterback Gyree Durante from the team after he kneeled for the anthem before Saturday’s game with Delaware Valley University.

“I was just taught you fight for what you believe in and you don’t bow to anyone,” Durante, told NBC Philadelphia. “I believe heavily in this. So I decided to fight for it.”

Durante was booted from the team not by the Lions’ coaches or administrators, but in a decision by a 24-member leadership council composed of Durante’s teammates. The team agreed to kneel during the coin toss and stand for the Anthem, but Durante went against his word to stand in his decision to kneel, according to teammates.

“We trusted him throughout the week, after time and time again he told us he would stand,” teammate Josh Powell told the station. “When you can’t have a player on a team that you can trust, he’s got to go.”

Gyree Durante believes heavily in not bowing to anyone. Got that?
