(TAMPA TRIBUNE) ZEPHYRHILLS — A student videotaping a fight at Zephyrhills High School last week captured a dramatic image of Principal Andy Frelick appearing to break up the altercation by tackling the aggressor with linebacker-style urgency.

Quicker than you can say “social media,” the video appeared on YouTube and Facebook, drawing quips that praised the principal’s aggressiveness, but also demonstrating that, at least in this case, some of the school district’s anti-bullying efforts may not be getting through to everyone.

Zephyrhills High, like schools throughout Pasco County, is involved in an anti-bullying campaign. As part of that, Frelick said, students are encouraged to take action when they see bullying happening.
