DUNCANVILLE – From viral videos to the nightly news, it seems bullying in school just isn't going away. So, Duncanville High decided one possible solution to increase the peace might be extreme sports.

Yep, you heard right. ASA Entertainment came out to the school Friday to put on three performances, hoping to spread the love, X-Games style.

"We teamed up with the Anti-Defamation League and their campaign called the 'No Place for Hate," and we just try to give out a positive message for kids to be nice to one another,” Micah Kranz of ASA Entertainment said.

Over 1,000 students got a chance to get in on the action and mix it up with some of the world's top X-Games pros.

"This is a good way to be able to bring light to the subject and try to eradicate bullying as a whole,” Pro BMX Rider Mat Olson said.

And by the look of things, these kids got the message.

"I think it's a good time to talk about bullying,” Davion Smith said. "I think the way they captured all the energy and all the attention of the students was really smart."

"It's a good message,” Ranesha Thompson said. “Don't be mean to people. Just embrace them and don't judge them by their cover."

Here's hoping this is a start to an extreme change.
