Middle School Basketball Players Walked Off The Court During A Game To Defend Bullied Cheerleader

Such an inspirational story.

An amazing thing happened at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wisconsin during a basketball game, but it was a whole lot of awfulness that spurred it.

8th grader Desiree Andrews, who has Down Syndrome, was at the game as a cheerleader when a few fans began heckling her from the stands.

Well, three basketball players for the home team — Miles Rodriguez, Scooter Terrien and Chase Vazquez — heard those insults being hurled and they decided to do something about it.

They walked OFF the basketball court during the game and confronted the bullies — telling them to stop what they were doing immediately. And the bullying DID stop after those powerful actions!

The three boys have been hailed for their actions since, but it may be Desiree who has been affected by their actions in the most positive way.

The 8th grader apparently never walks to class alone anymore as many people now join her through the halls ever since hearing about what happened.

Desiree has also grown closer to the three boys who defended her from the bullying and the principal of the school has even named the gym “D’s House” in honor of the amazing girl at the forefront of these touching series of events.

“D” herself has described the three boys’ actions as “sweet, kind, awesome, amazing.”

Just another example of how beautiful this world can be!
