  • "Jones decided to take it upon himself to protect the freshman, eating lunch with her every day and ensuring that she was protected by a phalanx of other football players when she walked through the hall."

    It wasn't a phalanx bullying her, it was a phalanx protecting her. GOOD on that young man for doing the right thing.

  • It took one boy to stand up to a lot. If you read the article it states "phalanx of other football players" were amoung those bullying her at first. Hopefully the other boys grew up and realized that she was just an innocent young girl.
