Basketball players leave game to defend bullied cheerleader

Is there anything better than kids stepping up?

We think not.

Over in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Miles Rodriguez, Scooter Terrien and Chase Vazquez were in the middle of a basketball game when they, noticed a commotion on the sideline.

They realized one of their team’s cheerleaders, Desiree Andrews, was being picked on. Desiree has Down syndrome.

Upon realizing what was happening, the three players walked off the court and confronted the bullies, getting them to stop.

Good stuff, kids. Really good stuff.
