Usually we hear about bullying flooding the halls of our schools but recent events in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins has turned our attention to bullying in sports.

The Rochester Knighthawks held an anti-bullying program today called, "We Got Your Back" to tell young kids to be vocal about any bullying they might see.

A player from the Knighthawks talked with CYO basketball and cheerleading teams and other interested students about their personal bullying experiences.

"I think in our era, we're seeing it more and more whether its online, tweeting or on Facebook," said Joe Walters, Knighthawks Forward. "It's a topic that's a huge problem right now. I think we're in a position where we can try to talk to kids to try and stop it."

The Knighthawks have visited more than 4,000 kids since the "We Got Your Back" program began in October 2012.
