Four Teens Suspended for “Tebowing” at School
While it seems like defenses can’t stop the Tim Tebow madness from happening, Riverhead High School principal put an end to the ‘Tebowing’ craze. According to Yahoo! nearly 40 students decided to bow down in the hallway to pay homage between classes, and do the Tim Tebow pose.
The school suspended four students who they believed organized the impromptu celebration for one day saying they were ‘blocking the schools hallways’. Conner and Tyler Carroll who both play on the football team, Wayne Drexel and Jordan Fulcoly were the four students disciplined,
Conner was the most surprised about the punishment levied upon him;
“The administration told us 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. We had no idea that we could get suspended for such a thing. It was a joke between a group of friends that took a life of its own. We figured at the most we would just be told to stop.”
Now if you ask me they shouldn’t have been suspended, they should be applauded. To arrange such a celebration shows valuable skills such as leadership. Can you imagine how hard it was to coordinate 40 other people do something at once? Furthermore to be that organized alludes to their knack for preparation. And think of it this way, you suspended them for an act of fun, allowing them to have a day free of school… doesn’t seem like much of a punishment if you ask me.
