NEW ORLEANS (WDSU) — After Demario Davis was fined $7,000 for wearing a “Man of God” headband during Sunday’s Saints game, students from a New Orleans school are lending him their support.
Students at St. Louis King of France Catholic School posted photos wearing “Children of God” headbands.
Davis wears his “Man of God” headband during games to bring awareness to fundraising for St. Dominick’s Hospital.
He accepted the fine, but encourages people to buy their own headbands to raise money for the hospital.
