Students at St. Louis King of France Catholic School in Metairie, New Orleans, created their own headbands with the words “Child of God” written across them to support Demario Davis after NFL fined him about $7,000 for wearing a headband with the same message during a game.
In a tweet posted on Oct. 8, the students were seen being at SLKF to “show our community that we, just like Demario Davis, are proud and happy to mark ourselves as a ‘Man/Woman/Child of God’ and support our New Orleans Saints,” a representative said.

Davis, a linebacker, is in his second year with the New Orleans Saints. In the win against the Seattle Seahawks in week 3 of this season, he was fined for wearing a personalized headband.
The NFL said it has rules against “personal messages” and regards them as a uniform violation. The exact amount of the fine was $7,017, according to NOLA.com.
