Seattle Seahawks Star Defensive Player Stands with Veterans During National Anthem

Cliff Avril is a defensive end with the Seattle Seahawks. He signed with the Seahawks in March 2013 after playing for the Detroit Lions, having been drafted in the third round in 2008.

Avril is a Christian and a Super Bowl champion. He and the Seahawks won the title in 2013. One thing that Cliff Avril made perfectly clear during the National Anthem at Monday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills is this.

He supports our military and respects America and her flag, Old Glory. He let that be perfectly clear when he stood arm in arm with current members of the military and veterans captured in this touching photo by KING 5.

At  a time when so many NFL players, led by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, disrespect America and the flag during the National Anthem on a weekly basis, this is refreshing.

Respect, indeed.

Well done, sir. Lead the way.
