Members of the Indiana PeeWee and Indiana Area Junior High’s football teams created a tunnel with American flags donated by Indiana VFW Post 1989 at Friday’s game through the efforts of Mike Weaver, of Indiana.

Derek Stapleton, a senior at Indiana Area High School, led teammates through the tunnel with a flag Weaver carried while running the Pittsburgh Marathon in May.

Weaver will carry the flag today as part of Team Red, White and Blue’s 93-mile relay from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh to Shanksville, where participants are expected to end the relay at the 9/11 memorial at 9:11 a.m. Sunday.
