Schools say football prayer not OK ( August 31, 2015)

University of Toledo (Ohio) football coach Matt Campbell will no longer lead his team in the Lord’s Prayer before games. “The University and the football coaching staff are endorsing religion whenever Coach Campbell incorporates prayer into the team’s pregame activities and allows himself or the coaching staff to lead them,” wrote Senior Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert.
Media reports over the summer indicated that Campbell said players would now “determine on their own any personal preparation methods to help them mentally prepare.” The university confirmed on Aug. 31 that those reports were accurate.
