If someone is your friend, you don’t turn your back on them when they are going through a tough time. I give Tebow credit for not trying to distance himself away from Cooper.
“You know we’re friends,” Tebow, a backup quarterback with the New England Patriots, told CSNPhilly.com on Tuesday. “We’ve been close for a long time, so we’ll talk.
“I haven’t gotten to see him yet today. I’m sure I’ll see him soon, but I was definitely praying for him.”
At this point there isn’t much else to be said. It happened, no one is going to forget, but there is no reason to keep talking about every single day. It is something Riley Cooper and his teammates will have to get through at their own pace.
