The young University of Tennessee fan that was bullied last week for a homemade shirt he wore to his school’s collegiate day was shown an outpouring of support that has since inspired the university to make his design into an official piece of apparel Laura Snyder, a teacher in Altamonte Springs, Florida, shared a post on Facebook about a young Vols fan who she said was bullied by girls at his school over a t-shirt he was previously excited to wear for his school’s college color day  WISCONSIN CITY CONSIDERING ANTI-BULLYING ORDINANCE THAT WOULD FINE PARENTS  Snyder described how the young boy wanted to show his support for the University of Tennessee but didn’t have a school shirt She suggested he wear an orange shirt. “He told me every day leading up to it that he had an orange shirt that he was going to wear So when the day finally arrived, he was SO EXCITED to show me his shirt. I was impressed that he took it one step further to make his own label,” her post read ” Snyder was surprised, then, when she saw the student crying at his desk after lunch  “Some girls at the lunch table next to his (who didn’t even participate in college colors day) had made fun of his sign that he had attached to his shirt He was DEVASTATED,” she wrote. “I know kids can be cruel, I am aware that it’s not the fanciest sign, BUT this kid used the resources he had available to him to participate in a spirit day ” The teacher, obviously touched by the student’s attempt, said she was going to get him his own shirt but posted the story to social media to try and get in contact with someone from the university  Her expectations were surpassed. BOY, 14, USED AS HUMAN BRIDGE RECEIVES APOLOGY, SUPPORT AFTER VIDEO GOES VIRAL  Not only did the University of Tennessee send a box full of “swag” – so that the student would never run out of options to show his Vols pride – but they also announced that they would be designing an official school shirt after his own creation  ‘“I’m not even sure I can put into words his reaction. It was so heartwarming. My student was so amazed at all the goodies in the box He proudly put on the jersey and one of the many hats in the box,” Snyder shared in an updated post  “When I told him that his design was being made into a real shirt and people wanted to wear it, his jaw dropped He had a big smile on his face, walked taller, and I could tell his confidence grew today! Thank you to the UT Nation for that!!” The school’s official shop confirmed the news in a tweet announcing that a portion of the proceeds will go to an anti-bullying foundation  Snyder said that despite being bullied, the boy couldn’t wait to share some of the swag he had received with his fellow classmates  CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP  “My student got to pass out UT swag to his classmates They were ecstatic!!” she said. “While the kids were filling water bottles and waiting to water down their towels, it made this teacher so proud to see the kids congratulating my student High fives, hugs, pats on the back could be seen from the kids. This experience is uniting my class even more than I could have imagined, and it was truly amazing to witness!!” Snyder, a Florida State Seminoles fan herself, said even she was looking forward to wearing her student’s design

    In 20 years the girls who bullied this kid will become “Social Justice Warriors” and lecture the rest of us in how to constantly walk on eggshells with other people’s feelings. Oh, and George Soros will still pay them to act sensitive from his crypt.

    Well, no offense, but that looks like a sign made by one lazy retarded person. At least color in the letters.

    I don’t car how it was made the shirt design is ugly and sloppy. Personally I would where UT shirts that actually have at lest a small amount of thought put into the design.

    Wear your original t-shirt with pride young man. Your next t-shirt design should be a big middle finger on the front with the names of all of those miserable twats names printed below.

    Absolutely fan-dang-tastic!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray for the young mand and his teacher ; kudos to the Vols for sending him the swag, seeling the shirt with the design and donating $$$ to an anti-bullying campaign. After Sat. night loss to BYU, bring HIM to Knoxville to pump some life into the football team. To Ms. Snyder, a HUGE "thanks" for doing what you did! Best of luck to your class and you from a lifelong Big Orange sports fan! 🙂

    Fantastically beautiful design. Should win some kind of award for commercial art. Design looks like someone scribbled “U.T.” In a cave or wall just before being executed for believing in University of Tennessee!

    BE AWARE! It would appear there is already an assortment of counterfeit stuff being pedalled—including coffee cups.
    This video shows what appears to be the original.
    Both versions pay homage to the boy; but with the counterfeit version, the money probably goes to the wrong place.
    Original: The “U” is squared off at both ends, with a little ‘step-in’ at the start.
    Counterfeit: The “U” is slightly rounded at the ends.
    Original: Spelling is correct.
    Counterfeit: Displays “unbersity of tenneseu”.

    One second off on the video length. Dang.
    I also think that the most shocking thing about this whole story (with other research) is that the principal said “The girls were just teasing him.” Let me ask you all this, if it was a little girl getting bullied for the same reason by boys, would the principal have the same reaction? I don’t think so, but that’s my opinion. What’s yours?
