A Tennessee fan living in Florida just had his dreams come true when UT President Randy Boyd decided to pick his design for a new nation-wide anti-bullying campaign.
When Dale Brill taped a home-drawn “U T” design to the front of an orange shirt, other school kids began picking on him. His school teacher decided to share the story of bullying on Facebook, and the story quickly went viral.
The campaign became so big, that the president of UT designed that the story needed to be immortalized by turning Brill’s design into an official school shirt.
I was touched to learn of a young Florida school student’s heart for the University of Tennessee, and I LOVED his imagination behind designing his own shirt.

You can now order the shirt from the official online Vol Shop. A portion of the proceeds from every shirt sold will be donated to the non-profit ‘Stomp Out Bullying’.
