The Titusville football players were practicing on the grass field beside the stadium. The football players, without being prompted, stopped what they were doing, turned to the field and the flag flying above it, removed their helmets and placed their hands over their hearts in silence.
No one was watching them and it is likely no one would've thought anything about it if they kept practicing. But one or more heard the anthem and like a chain reaction, they all took part.
In gridiron action tonight, the Rockets travel to Sharpsville to take on the very tough Blue Devils. They won their season opener against Franklin last week.
