USA TODAY High School Sports – June 13, 2017

Joe Kennedy watched impassively as attorneys in his religious liberty case argued Monday in federal court.

Kennedy, a former assistant football coach for Bremerton School District, claims his rights to free speech and religious expression were violated when the district in September 2015 prohibited him from praying after games on the 50-yard line.

Kennedy initially abided by the prayer ban, but later defied it.
