MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Two high school students in Memphis, Tennessee, stepped up to help a freshman who was being bullied over his clothes.
Michael Todd was taken out of his third period class at Martin Luther King Preparatory High School on Monday morning. He froze when football players Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garrett handed him a gift -- bags full of shirts, shorts, shoes and more.
"I was very happy," Todd said. "Shocked completely."
"He wasn't smiling or anything and I was like, I think this is going to make you smile," Graham said. "I told him we're in the same third period and I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up."
Todd was getting made fun of for three straight weeks at his new school.
"I've been bullied my entire life," he said.
He would wear the same clothes every day and students at the school would mock him for it.
"My mom can't buy clothes for me because I'm growing too fast," he said.
"When I saw people laugh and bully him, I felt like I needed to do something," Graham said.
So Graham went through his closet and grabbed a bunch of clothes. He also texted his friend Antwan for help.
"I got some brand-new shoes I can give him and a couple of items I could give him too," Garrett said.
They packed it all up and gave it to Todd.
The help isn't stopping in the halls of the school. People from other states have seen the video and went to send him clothes.
"Awesome," Todd said of all of the attention. "The best day of my entire life, basically."
