Indiana State player joins Kaepernick in protesting during national anthem

Kneeling during the national anthem, an act of protest made popular by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, became part of the college football culture on Saturday.

At least one Indiana State football player was spotted kneeling during the anthem prior to the Sycamores game at Minnesota, though it is likely there were more than him doing so across the country, especially after witnessing the act during the NFL's Thursday night opener and in high school games this week.

This photo, uncredited but shared by journalist Shaun King, appears to show Lonnie Walker II (No. 33) kneeling during the anthem. The school has offered no official comment at this time.
