A group of high school kids, have been put into in-school suspension, for “Tebowing”.
That’s what one Long Island administration said Wednesday when it suspended a group of high school athletes for replicating Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow’s popular pose in the hallway at school.
Jordan Fulcoly, Wayne Drexel and brothers Tyler and Connor Carroll of Riverhead High School were all handed a one-day suspension Wednesday, after three days of taking a knee with their foreheads resting on their fists, the same way Tebow does in the end zone and on the sidelines
The incident saw about 40 students engaging in the popular Tebowing. Only the four students, all athletes, were suspended. Caroll told Prep Rally that the administration told them “that our Tebowing was blocking the halls and could potentially cause a riot, because they were growing in number and if the wrong kid gets pushed a brawl could ensue.”
How can anyone brawl while doing the Tebow? I personally think that many administrators and adults in general just need to chill sometime! Let kids be kids! At least they were NOT doing the "Sam Hurd".
As a quick aside, here is a great line from Doug Farrar of Yahoo Sports on this story:
Apparently, Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd’s close personal proximity to Tim Tebow last Sunday in the Bears’ overtime loss to the Denver Broncos did nothing to clean up Hurd’s act.
