On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day, we invite former Lansing Catholic football player Michael Lynn III, who decided to kneel during the national anthem two years ago as a form of protest against inequality in America. Kneeling during the anthem as a former of protest was first started by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Lynn III, along with three other teammates, knelt in honor of Kaep's decision, sparking outrage throughout the mid-Michigan community. 

Listen as Al talks about how Lynn's life has changed since the kneeling controversy, and how the invite from Presidential candidate O'Rourke came to fruition.
