Amazing class demonstrated by Lapeer Lightning Freshmen football team!!! After we were told per the Carman Ainsworth announcer they won't be playing the pregame national anthem our team stood proud, saluted the flag and sung it themselves, our crowd stood with them for every note! Very proud to be a Lightning Mom tonight!!

Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools Superintendent Eddie L. Kindle told MLive.com that the anthem was played before the junior varsity game later that night.

"Like most schools in the state of Michigan, we choose to play the national anthem prior to the highest level of competition," he said. "That is common and typical in many communities in Michigan. We have never and will never refuse to play the national anthem."

The freshmen didn't take any of this into account. Their coach, Byran Sahr, said the players thought there was an issue with the sound system and took care of the rest from there.

"We had all lined up on the sideline like we usually do for the national anthem," he told MLive.com. "It's an incredible feeling. I've been with most of these players for three years now. They're just an awesome group of kids," Sahr said. "It makes me incredibly emotional and I don't usually get emotional."

WATCH: High school softball team loses championship while they celebrate

In sports, the worst-case scenario is always a possibility. But in Texas, members of the Wylie High School softball team probably never could have imagined what happened during a district championship game.

Wylie had a 6-2 lead over McKinney North High entering the bottom of the seventh inning in their April 22 game, Campus Rush reports.

McKinney then scored two runs in the inning, closing the gap to 6-4. Then they loaded the bases, and with two outs, they were one out away from elimination.

A routine ground ball to the shortstop seemed to end it. The Wylie player picked up the grounder and flipped it to second base for the apparent out, triggering the team's celebration of the district championship.

But, not so fast.

The runner at second was never called out, and McKinney’s players continued to circle the bases. The Wylie team celebrated before realizing the runner was not called out and the game wasn't over. They scrambled for the ball but by that time three runs had scored, ending the game with a victory for McKinney.

The Wylie team looked on in shock.

It was a sports memory neither team likely will ever forget.

High school football player suspended for 'praising God'

A high school football player in Arizona could miss the school's first playoff game in 25 years after an official deemed a gesture to in praise of God as "excessive celebration."

Pedro Banda, 17, was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and ejected from a game last week after he pointed his index finger to the sky following a touchdown.

The senior running back at Dysart High School in El Mirage, northwest of Phoenix, says he was praising God. The official and opposing coach believe he may have been taunting opponents.

Glendale coach Brian Bowman told the Arizona Republic the game was “chippy between players throughout” and felt that Banda was part of it.

“I know he got one (unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the first quarter) when he got into it with one of our kids,” Bowman said. “They had given him a warning a couple of plays before his touchdown gave them a 28-0 lead with 4 minutes left. They gave him a warning and ejected one of our guys. It felt like taunting because it happened right after that.”

The unsportsmanlike penalty, coupled with the ejection for excessive celebration means Banda must serve a one game suspension. An appeal is being reviewed by the Arizona Interscholastic Association. The association's bylaw, however, states ejections are not subject to appeal.

Banda told Arizona TV station KNXV he will continue to do the gesture after scoring touchdowns.

“I just thank God for all the power he’s given me to play the game," Banda said. "And I just give the glory to Him.”
