Army Football Team Brings French Flag Onto Field At West Point

A winning gesture.

The Army football team on Saturday made a winning play for solidarity with France following the attacks in Paris the night before. One player carried the French flag onto the field before the team's game against Tulane, according to USA Today's For The Win blog.

Defensive back Caleb McNeill did the honors at West Point's Michie Stadium.


The United States Military Academy tweeted that it "stands with the French people following the #ParisAttacks - liberté, égalité, fraternity. #DutyHonorCountry."


Here's video of the moment, showing players waving both the American and French flags at the entrance.
