FSU entered field with US flag flown in Afghanistan

Friday was the fourteenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center in New York Center. Today is Military Appreciation Day in Tallahassee as the Florida State Seminoles take on South Florida.

The team celebrated the military in one of the coolest ways possible. College teams usually enter the field with a flag of the United States, but the Seminoles’ had something extra behind it.

The flag that Florida State ran out with was flying in Afghanistan at one point. FSU broadcaster took an awesome picture of the flag being carried by Darvin Taylor II, whose parents are both retired from the military.


What a special moment for Taylor and the rest of the Seminoles. No matter how today’s game against the Bulls, the freshman defensive tackle will never forget this momentous occasion.
