PITTSBURGH (KGO) -- A teenager with autism who was bullied by his teammates says he's feeling much better, thanks to a huge show of support from his community.
More than 100 bikers organized a special ride in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in support of 16-year-old Austin Babinsack.
About a week ago, police say Austin's soccer team duct taped him to a goal post.
He's been avoiding his classmates ever since.
The bikers say they want Austin to know he's not alone. It's a message that's helped him work up the courage to go back to class on Monday.
"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "I'm thankful for the support of people I don't even know and people I've known for quite a while now."
Austin's parents say they don't think they've gotten the full support from the teen's school, and they still want an apology.
