Fifth grade boys suit up in support of 6-year-old

Six-year-old Danny Keefe is the most dapper kindergartener you've ever seen, always in suit and tie. He was born with a speech disorder called apraxia.

Recently, some kids at his school began teasing him about it, that didn't sit well with a group of fifth grade football players. So they decided to dress up like Danny who's the water boy for their team.

"We heard that Danny was getting picked on, so we thought that we would all have a day to dress up like Danny, and we thought we would all come to school like Danny, and sponsor Danny to show Danny that we love him, that we love him very much," fifth grader Tommy Cooney said.

The show of support overwhelmed Danny's parents. His dad says the fact other kids are looking out for him, has left him speechless.
