Young boys who helped save family from fire honored by Kent Fire Department

MORROW, Ohio (WJW) — Two high school football players who were initially suspended after flying thin blue line and thin red line flags during a 9/11 tribute prior to a game, have now been granted scholarships from a local nonprofit organization.

The Holiday for Heroes organization called the two Little Miami High School football players “amazing” in a Facebook statement, and said they were proud to honor them with scholarships.
