Football player silences entire crowd with his performance of the national anthem before his match

One thing Americans have deep respect for, besides the flag and their veterans, is the national anthem. The Star Spangled Banner served as the hymns of U.S. officialdom before 1931 and for those of you not familiar with its origins, the lyrics come from the Defence of Fort M’Henry, a poem written in September 1814 by amateur poet Francis Scott Key.

Key witnessed the bombarding of Fort McHenry by British ships of the Royal Navy in Baltimore Harbor during the Battle of Baltimore and it is this event and the gorgeous U.S. flag that inspired the creation of the lyrics every proud American knows by heart.

The anthem is performed before every significant event, including sports.

It was during a recent football game by the Nashoba Regional High School when the performance of the anthem by one of the sophomores named Sam Keith went viral and stole the hearts of many.

What is interesting is that this incredibly talented singer with a mesmerizing vocal is a football player as well. He took the microphone in his hands and belted the famous lyrics while wearing his jersey with number 59 on it and holding his helmet in his hands.

Many agree that Keith’s performance will go down in Nashoba High history!

After the footage of him singing the national anthem went viral, his school posted an upade, writing: “Sam has continued to sing the anthem at multiple football, soccer, and basketball games at his high school. He has continued his passion for voice and acting and is currently attending University of Cincinnati as a Musical Theater Major at CCM (College Conservatory of Music).
