The young University of Tennessee fan, who was harassed last week by a home shirt that he wore to his collegiate school day, was shown an excess of support that has since inspired the university to transform his design into formal wear.  Laura Snyder, a teacher in Altamonte Springs, Florida, shared a Facebook post about a young Vols fan who she said was bullied by girls at his school over a T-shirt she had previously worn to wear for her colorful a day at college.

Snyder described how the young boy wanted to show his support for the University of Tennessee but had no schools. She suggested he wear an orange shirt.
"Every day I was told that there was an orange shirt that he would wear. So when the day finally came, he was so excited to show me his shirt. It struck me that he took one step further to make his own label, "her post read."
Snyder was surprised to see a student cry on his desk after lunch.
"Some girls at the dinner table next to his (who does not even attend college colors day) make fun of his sign for hanging his shirt. He was UNKNOWN, "she writes." I know that children can be cruel, I know that this is not the most fantastic sign, but this child uses the resources at his or her disposal to participate in a spiritual day. "
The teacher, apparently moved by the student's experience, said he would take his own shirt, but he posted the story on social media to try and reach one of the universities.
Her expectations were exceeded.

"" I'm not even sure I can put into words his reaction. It was so heartbreaking. My student was so amazed at all the goodies in the box. He proudly put on his shirt and one of the many hats in the box, "
"When I told him that his design was made in a real shirt and people wanted to wear it, he let go of his jaw. He had a big smile on his face, he went higher and I can tell. that his confidence is growing today! Thanks NT Nation for that !!
The school's official store confirmed the news in a tweet announcing that part of the proceeds would go to the Anti-Bullying Foundation.
Snyder said that despite the harassment, the boy was eager to share some of the craft he had received with his classmates.

“My student needs to pass a UT swag to their classmates. They were ecstatic !! ", she said. "While the children were filling water bottles and waiting for their towels to be watered, this teacher made me so proud to see the children greet my student. Children could see high heels, hugs, pats on the back. This experience unites my class even more than I could ever imagine, and it was truly amazing to witness !! "
Snyder, himself a fan of Florida State Seminoles, said he even looks forward to wearing his student's design.
