BRIDGEWATER, Mass. – Even the most stoic person might shed a tear at the goodness found in a group of boys.

After the group of fifth-grade football players from Massachusetts found out their 6-year-old water boy was being teased for his attire and speech, they played great defense and showed him their support.

As ABC affiliate WCVB reports , Danny is a first-grader in Bridgewater, Mass.

He has a small speech impediment developed after a brain hemorrhage he had shortly after he was born.

And he’s the fiercely loved water boy for the fifth-grade football team.

His fifth-grade teammates found out other kids were picking on Danny for wearing a tie and jacket — and for his speech impediment.

Instead of lashing out, though, the boys decided to use their football skills to good use and planned a great defense.
