VolShop: 109,000+ shirts featuring design by Vol fan bullied in Florida sold

SEC Football

Orange and White Nation is continuing to throw support behind a young Vols fan bullied for his homemade Tennessee shirt in a big way.

The VolShop announced in a recent email to customers they have now sold more than 109,000 shirts featuring a design the boy designed.

The Florida student garnered worldwide attention after his teacher posted about his experience getting bullied after coming to school with a homemade Vols shirt.

Not long after, the VolShop decided to start selling his design with all proceeds going to the Stomp Out Bullying nonprofit charity.

They tweeted out last week that the number of orders placed had surpassed Neyland Stadium’s capacity of 102,455.

The VolShop said it originally placed an order for 72 shirts because that was the smallest number they could buy. Now they are working to fill several thousand orders every day.
