Help This Real NFL Hero Get the Attention Kaepernick Does Mike Vance September 16, 2016 News While Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players refuse to stand for the anthem, there is a real NFL hero that the media not paying attention to. Check out this report, per Conservative Tribune: Arie Kouandjio, 24, a reserve guard for the Washington Redskins, became an American citizen Tuesday, and he stood for that occasion with pride and anticipation while holding a tiny American flag. Kouandjio came to America with his family from Cameroon when he was 6 years old. His parents came to this country for the same reason many others do — to give their children a better education and a chance at a better life. The football player said it was a logical choice for him to become a citizen. Now he can enjoy the new rights that come along with being a citizen of the U.S., including voting and running for office. Congratulations to Washington @Redskins offensive lineman @AKouandjio74 on becoming a #newUScitizen today!! #HTTR pic.twitter.com/7C5h2FT9im — USCIS Media MD/VA (@USCISMediaVA) September 13, 2016 But everyone would rather talk about Colin Kaepernick and what a "hero" he is for disgracing our flag and our country.
