An Open Letter to the Bellarmine community:

Bellarmine football has been, and always will be, a brotherhood. Although some members of this team have chosen to express their beliefs by kneeling during the national anthem, the issue in no way reflects division in the locker room, or animosity between players. We all have utmost respect for each other, regardless of personal opinions. The players who knelt have our full support, and the friendship that we share has only been strengthened throughout the season. Furthermore, all decisions were made with the full and formed consent of the team. As a diverse group of individuals, we have varying beliefs, and different ideas regarding the expression of those beliefs. However, above all else, we are teammates, united by love we have for one another and the B’s which we wear on the side of our helmets.
