How can I defend myself if I'm not that big?

If someone's running at you how do I flip them over? If there throwing punches, any tips on how to dodge and fight back. I went to a public middle school was popular and had lots of friends, for high school my parents made me go to a all boy private school. I joined the lacrosse team and I tried being nice and making friends like I always did but they all instantly hated me for some reason and just want to start fights with me. One of them started a rumor that I was gay which is never a good thing in an all boys school and I know fighting isn't the way but I let these kids walk all over me and I think that's why they treat me like they do so how can I show this kid to shut up?

Use their momentum against them. Doesn't matter how big you are, long as your quick

Carry sharp objects. If you do end up getting out numbered or getting overpowered show it off too keep them back. If the police get involved say it was self defence.

well when you don't have the reach or power. You need to make up for that with speed and technique. as Muhammad Ali said "Your hands can't hit, what your eyes can't see"

but fighting will most likely only make things worse because if you lose they just make fun of you more. If you win they will just test your toughness and you'll get in even more fights.
