Sometimes doing the right thing is mandatory. That is why I am writing this article and I would like you to retweet it, share it, and get it in front of our President Joe Biden.
Cameron Kinley one of the top servicemen in the 2021 NFL Draft from the Naval Academy was denied the opportunity to continue playing in the National Football League. Not only was he an outstanding football player, he was also the class president for the past two years and delivered the speech at his graduation a few days ago on May 28th.
Kinley signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and had a shot to make the team as its fifth cornerback. The Navy’s surprising denial of his request caught Cameron off guard. Cameron posted this statement in regards to the decision.
I am writing this because I want the US President and the US Vice President to do the right thing and allow him to live out his dream. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the U.S. Navy has denied Kinley’s request “to delay his commission to play in the NFL.” Per Schefter, “Kinley is being required to commission into the U.S. Navy as an Ensign.”
It is messed up that the West Point and Air Force players are allowed to play but the Naval Academy kid cannot. That is not fair. I need you to do me a favor. I want you to listen to this interview with Cameron and try to explain why this kid does not deserve a chance to play in the NFL?
If you agree he should get a shot, all I am asking is you tag the President and Vice President in your tweet. Let’s get Cameron the same shot as the other servicemen that deserve it.
