A high school student in San Antonio was being bullied last fall, and Counselor Carri Elliott asked the football coach to find some football players to help protect the teen.
The San Antonio Express-News reports – “Though they didn’t know the freshman, quarterback Cohner Mokry (17) right guard Ryder Burke (18) and right tackle Austin Carson (18) soon had his schedule memorized. The three seniors would leave class a couple of minutes early to meet the boy outside his classroom and chat with him as he got to his next class.”
The three players confronted the bullies, and soon the boy was part of the football players’ group of friends. The school has expanded the program to protect more and more bullied students.
