A Washington State football coach fights for the right to pray on the field.

FOX News Radio's Chris Foster reports:

Football players at Bremerton High School in Washington pray at the 50-yard-line after games... Joining coach Joe Kennedy...

(Kennedy) "Kind of made an agreement with my personal faith and with God that this is something that I was going to do and I was going to give him the glory after every single game."

Coach Kennedy says he'll follow district policy and stop holding locker room prayers, but argues, after the game falls outside his work as a public employee.

Andrew Seidel's an attorney with the Freedom From Religion Foundation...

(Seidel) "There is no real legal leg that the coach has to stand on here... he is absolutely in the wrong."

The coach says he'll defy the order though, asking the district to review its policy.
