Former Auburn safety Tray Matthews was one of several college football players who stepped up to support a bullying victim in Pell City, Ala. On Tuesday, the 13-year-old girl that Matthews helped reached out to show her appreciation.

Matthews, along with other players such as Auburn wide receiver Darius Slayton and Ole Miss guard Javon Patterson, recorded videos of themselves addressing the seventh grader, who was a victim of cyberbullying at her school, as well as those who bullied her.

The group of athletes were alerted to the situation by Rachel Baribeau, whose program Changing the Narrative works to “change the narrative of college sports” through empowering and educating student-athletes.
