Hoover’s 9 Lap Challenge

The Hoover High school football team returned to their field in a different way on Saturday, as the sponsors of the 9 Lap Challenge to speak out against racial injustice and inequality. Coaches and players were joined by teachers, staff, students and neighbors in a 9-lap walk around the track, representing the final 9 minutes of the life of George Floyd, whose death at the hands of police has been the catalyst for nationwide protests and rallies. See more of the event on the DMPS Flickr page.
