Hundreds of residents gather in Walker County over the weeked for a Rally To Pray.
The event was in support of Ridgeland High School football coach Mark Mariakis.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation accused the school and Mariakis of violating students' first amendment rights.
Residents all around Walker County are standing up in support.
Ridgeland High School Sophomore, Ally Johnson says, "I love God and I think it's very important in our life because it just makes you a better person in general."
"We're not called to change the world but we're called to share the gospel and that that gospel will change lives," recalls Mariakis.
Walker County schools sent a response to the FFRF.
No word if they've heard back.
