Lansing Catholic football players who knelt during anthem decide to transfer

Quote:
Two of four Lansing Catholic football players who knelt during the national anthem at games this fall and sought reforms to promote diversity and inclusion at the school have decided to leave it.

Michael Lynn III and Matthew Abdullah, both seniors, transferred to Lansing Sexton and Holt high schools, respectively.

Lynn, Lansing Catholic's starting quarterback, started classes at Sexton last week; Abdullah intends to start classes at Holt next week. He cleaned out his locker at Lansing Catholic on Friday.

Erica Lynn, Lynn's mother, said her son's decision to transfer to Sexton was based on a variety of factors. One issue, Erica Lynn said, was the school's treatment of him before and after he decided to kneel at games.

"It was a way to salvage his last year in what should have been a wonderful experience," Erica Lynn said of Michael's transfer to Sexton.

Michael Lynn started his high school football career at Sexton and transferred to Lansing Catholic midway through his sophomore year.

Lynn, Abdullah and football teammates Kabbash Richards and Roje Williams said they knelt at games this season as a form of peaceful protest against racism.

Their actions didn't appear to sit well with school officials and Jim Ahern, the football coach......
