N.J. Football Coach's Appeal to Pray Denied

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court has dealt a blow to a high school football coach who was fighting to bow his head and kneel when his players pray.

The high court decided not to hear Marcus Borden's appeal.

The East Brunswick, N.J. school district prohibits the practice but Borden has questioned whether it was constitutional.

He and his attorney have not commented on today's Supreme Court move.

Barry Lynn, who represents the school district, has said promoting religion is not the role of coaches.

"Coaches are not supposed to be promoting religion; that's up to students and parents and pastors," he said.
