A Pennsylvania high school student who says a teacher humiliated him for wearing a Denver Broncos jersey to class has left the school district.

Seventeen-year-old Joshua Vannoy wore the jersey January 20th, before the Broncos hosted Pittsburgh in the AFC title game -- but ethics relations teacher John Kelly forced him to sit on the floor while taking an exam, and encouraged others to pelt him with paper wads.

Joshua's father, Brian, says his son has faced more harassment and silence from students after returning to classes January 30th.

The incident led Bassett furniture to give Joshua a heat-massage chair that former Broncos quarterback John Elway helped design.

Joshua is enrolled in a new school, but its name and location are unknown.
