This former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva was the only Steeler to come out for the National Anthem on Sunday. He stood in the tunnel while the rest of the team hid in the locker room. You can watch the inspiring video below.

Villanueva stood with his hand over his heart and sang with price during the National Anthem. The 28-year-old Army Ranger served three tours in Afghanistan.

Here is the full video below.

Mike Tomlin “You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as a football team it’s about us remaining solid. We’re not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. … “[I told our players] if you feel the need to do anything I’m going to be supportive of that — as Americans you have that right. But whatever we do we’re going to do 100 percent, we’re going to do together. We’re not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals affect our agenda.”

Share this if you think that it’s time that these overpaid NFL players respect our flag. Let’s send them a message by getting this everywhere.


  1. Most people are not allowed to bring/display/protest political or social issues in their workplace unless they want to be fired. Only wealthy celebrities (entertainers, sports figures, etc,) are allowed to do so with no disciplinary action. The workplace (football field) is not the place for such and the public has responded accordingly. I applaud Mr. Hunt, Owner and CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs for his stand on this issue. THE FOOTBALL FIELD IS NOT THE PLACE FOR SOCIAL AND/OR POLITICAL PROTESTS!
