His plan certainly backfired

3 Felt Ashamed of Bobby When He Refused to Take a Beating as Part of a School Tradition - What Makes Bobby Run

Bobby becomes the longhorn mascot much to Hank's delight who embraces the idea however what nobody or even Hank tells Bobby before he tried out that it's a tradition that when ever Arlen is winning the McManerbury band charge the longhorn mascot and give him a pounding come game day when Arlen takes the lead and the McManerbury band begin to charge Bobby he understandably runs away and the next day everyone shames Bobby for not taking the beating and even Hank and Peggy are ashamed of Bobby's cowardliness at one point Hank tells Peggy during a game "If anyone yells there's Bobby Hills parents just start to look around saying where, where!" and all this because Bobby refused to let a bunch of junior high students psychically assault him as part of a tradition.

I would go with this one, as I definitely wouldn't want to get beaten up by that football team. I don't blame Bobby for running
