The Cy-Fair youth football league says it will stop playing the National Anthem before games. As for high schools in the area, they say it’s a non-issue. Summer Creek high school, said, ”we won’t make any major response to it one way or the other” is a part of Humble ISD. The Houston ISD says it won’t require students to stand during the National Anthem.
