Good on the coach for his actions. His playground, his rules.

He most likely benefits from the fact it is a Christian school. I don't think a public school coach in Austin, Dallas or Houston would have said a word or the news would be about him being suspended or fired.

There were some knees taken last week at my high school kid's game, and I found a local article where the coach had encouraged against any protest, but wasn't going to punish them. If it was my call, none of them would see the field again.

High schools are not democracies. The students are not adults. The rules are the rules.
