Oklahoma kid honored at Michigan football game
By Anthony Slater – Aslater@opubco.com - @anthonyVslater
The T-shirt that caused such a local stir has now become the national story that won’t die.
Last month, an Oklahoma City public school forced Cooper Barton to turn his Michigan “Big House” shirt inside-out, immediately angering his family and thrusting the outdated dress code into question.
On Saturday, the five-year-old OKC native was honored at Michigan’s Big House.
“It wasn’t offensive. He’s five,” Shannon Barton, Cooper’s mother, told News9 at the time.
Since then, the code (which bans students from wearing clothing promoting any out-of-state colleges or professional teams) has been temporarily lifted and is currently under further review.
