(WTXL) — A Memphis teen who was bullied for weeks because he wore the same clothes to school everyday has some new threads thanks to two football players at his school.

CNN reports that Michael Todd, a freshman at MLK College Preparatory High School, was bullied for three straight weeks because he wore the same things every day.

Monday morning, Todd was taken out of third period and presented with a bag full of shirts, shorts, shoes and more from two football players at the school, Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garret.

"He wasn't smiling or anything and I was like I think this is going to make you smile," said Graham. "I told him we're in the same third period and I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up."

The help doesn't stop there. People from around the nation have also seen the video and want to send Michael clothes.

Kristopher and Antwan hope they inspire other kids to do the same and help others in need.
