A football coach from Georgia's East Coweta High School who was recently banned from praying with players has revealed that an atheist group's quest to remove him from invocations has actually sparked an incredible reaction from players and students, alike.

"Our students have done a great job, and our students took it upon themselves to organize a prayer with our students in the stands before the game," John Small told The Christian Post. "Instead of it being 100 players praying, it turned into 400 students praying. That's their right, and we are going to support them in that."

The coach went as far as to say that the ban preventing him from leading prayer has "really turned into a positive" and that the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the atheist group that sparked the entire battle, has actually activated something much more powerful.
