In response to a letter by the American Humanist Association (AHA) directed to Hall County Superintendent, William Schofield, that demanded coaches at Chestatee High School stop joining and leading players in pre- and post-game prayers—which the AHA considers ” an egregious violation of the Establishment Clause”—parents and students gathered by the hundreds to pray on the school’s football field.
