Roundup staff reporter Jessica Boyer interviews Bobby Baker, a defensive back for Pierce College’s football team, who is involved in “Be You”, an anti-bullying campaign. From the story:

From bullying players on the field to leading an anti-bullying campaign off the field, Pierce College student and current defensive back for the program Bobby Baker brings the “Be You” campaign to the college.

“The campaign is to promote and bring awareness to individuality and anti-bullying,” Baker said. “It’s to help and influence people to be themselves.”

Baker has been involved with the “Be You” campaign for about a month, learning about it from his friend, Anthony McLaughlin.

“I think that it’s great that athletes are getting involved,” said Bob Lofrano, athletic director of the Pierce College Athletic Department. “Athletes are usually people out in front and are confident about themselves. I think they’d be a good spokesperson for an anti-bullying campaign. That’s an important topic and hats off to the athletes who have a part in that.”
