LOUISA, VA (WWBT) -

The New York Giants-Oakland Raiders football game on Sunday will feature some artwork from Central Virginia aimed to help fight bullying. 

Students from Louisa Public Schools teamed up this week to paint the cleats of defensive end Kerry Wynn, a Louisa County High School grad. 

The cleats are part of the NFL's "My Cause, My Cleats," which allows players to support a charity of their choice. 

Wynn surprised students at an anti-bullying pep rally last month and gave cleats to the students to paint. He promised to wear them during the Dec. 3 game. 

Wynn is a Louisa County High School graduate and surprised students during a district-wide anti-bullying pep rally last month.

On that day, he presented the cleats to the students and vowed to wear them Dec. 3 on the field.
