NFL Player Gains American Citizenship, Tells Why He STANDS For The National Anthem

NFL Player Cyrus Kouandjio recently became a citizen of the United States. The offensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills took the citizenship oath with 33 other people in a Buffalo courtroom.


Kouandjio’s family moved to the U.S. from Cameroon when he was only 4 years old. According to the Blaze, his family experienced unspeakable hardship before they settled in America. “My father still tells stories of running away from the violence, hiding out in the woods, his baby sister on his back,” Kouandjio said. “He lived in a far different world.”

After all the hardships that his family faced and all that America has done for him, Kouandjio has no intention of disrespecting the American flag the way some of his fellow NFL players have. “I can’t kneel during the anthem,” Kouandjio said. “I don’t blame Colin Kaepernick for doing what he did. But for me, I have too much respect for a flag and anthem that represent freedom and liberty.”
