School leaders say no Confederate flag was displayed at Colorado high school football game


Weld County schools leaders weighed in Sunday after a football game in Denver where Manual High School players and the principal alleged a Confederate flag was displayed and that players were taunted with racial slurs — saying they found no evidence this happened.

The Weld officials declared they’ve canceled future sports competitions with Manual High School in Denver and denounced any form of racism.

Weld Central High officials reviewed a video recording of the Friday night football game at Manual that included shots of the crowd, Superintendent Greg Rabenhorst and Weld Central High School Principal Dan Kennedy said in a letter distributed to families.
