Parker Football In the News!
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Over the last few weeks, football players locally and nationally have taken a knee as the national anthem played, but two schools in Rock County are taking a different approach.
"When we step on the field we're worst enemies," Janesville Parker football player, DJ Vance, said. "But off the field we can be best friends."
"Its something that's become we see as very important to us and in our city and in our nation," Beloit Memorial football player, Tyler Curtis-Dupuis, said. "I think just being active in it and wanting to help make a change was something we wanted to do."
The senior wanted to continue the conversation, with the help of his high school football team's biggest rival. Before Friday's game, Janesville Parker and Beloit Memorial stood together forming a 'U' for unity.
"I wanted to show unity is the important thing and equality is the important thing and to look past any type of background a person has, whether it be ethnic, or where they're from," Curtis-Dupuis, said. "We're all the same at the end of the day, so treating each other how we wanted to be treated.
A concept playing both sides of the field.
"It was kind of refreshing to have some kind of peace and positivity," Janesville Parker football player Ed Jacobson said. "In society, we have controversy everywhere so its nice to have unity among everyone. You got to make an effort to make the world a better place any way you can."
