We have a great story this morning involving a couple of high school football players who stepped in to help a freshman who was being bullied and janai Norman is on set this morning with more on that, good morning. Good morning, guys. It's a very sweet story. One of those players even admitted that he laughed at the freshman too but then they realized this was the student new to the school actually needed help so that's when they stepped up and took matters into their own hands. Awesome. The best day of my entire life basically. A high school freshman's life-changing in an instant thanks to two football players and an act of kindness. I got something for you. Michael todsaid he had been bullied for three weeks for wearing the same clothes every day. My mom can't buy clothes for me because I'm growing too fast. Reporter: That's when Kristopher graham and antwann Garrett stepped in. When I saw people laugh at him and bully him, I felt like I needed to do something. Reporter: They gave him some of their own shorts, shirts and a pair of brand-new shoes seen here in this video. I brought you some shores and shoes, you know what. Here you go. Reporter: Pulling Todd out of class this week with a surprise gift leaving him speechless. Shocked completely. Then I almost cried when he told me, he was like, you know, you two are the only two that actually gave me a gift. Reporter: Garrett apologizing for his part. I told him, I said, we was assigned in third period. I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up. Reporter: The heartfelt moment between classmates gaining attention on social media. The school now flooded with hundreds of calls and thousands of emails after the generous act has even set up a special section just for Michael on their donations page. You guys are the best guys of my entire life. The school tells ABC news the football players now want to start a campaign to promote kindness. As for Michael all of the support has really made a huge difference for him. We're told at school everyone talks to him. He doesn't sit alone at lunch anymore. And he says he really feels like himself again. Amazing how a few popular kids can make a huge difference in the overall culture. Especially in high school. And also you don't know what people are going through. That's right. Thanks, janai.
