Praying Coach Fights for His Rights

Ad Feedback

Marcus Borden has been coaching at a New Jersey high school for more than 20 years.

His football team has won division championships, and his work off the field earned him USA Today's "Caring Coach of the Year" award in 2003.

But, that all changed two years ago when he was sued for praying before the game.

At first, Borden resigned.  Then he decided to come back and coach, agreeing that he would not lead prayers.

Now, a court ruled he also can't kneel and bow his head while members of his team lead prayer.

CBN News spoke with Borden's lawyer about the case, and why he's taking the fight to the Supreme Court.
