A WBRZ story received national attention Friday after News 2's Dana Hackett reported about a Livingston Parish student who claimed he was sent home for wearing an Indianapolis Colts jersey to school.
Hackett joined a radio show on WIBC in Indianapolis to talk about the story.
"[Schools Friday] had what you might call Saints Day or Black and Gold Day," Hackett told WIBC. "A lot of kids wore uniforms and this was the only one we heard of [a kid wearing] Colts."
On Friday, Maurepas High School allowed students to dress out of uniform and wear Saints gear to support the team, which is playing in the Super Bowl Sunday. Brandon Frost, a senior, claimed the principal sent him home when he showed up at school wearing a Colts jersey.
"The principal came and got me out of class," said Frost. "He started to get angry with me. After that, all I really remember him telling me was if I like Indiana so much, why don't I move back to Indiana."
Frost is from Indianapolis and moved to Maurepas with his father four years ago.
Steve Vampran, principal of Maurepas High School, had no comment.
