Students Suspended for ‘Tebowing’ In the Halls [VIDEO]
Denver Bronco quarterback Tim Tebow is making an impression on today's youth. His celebration kneel down is called 'Tebowing' and its being impersonated across the country. But the simple pose has landed 4 high school kids in hot water.
The students from Long Island, New York's Riverhead High were suspended for 'Tebowing' in the hallway. Although 40 student athletes participated in the kneel down, only Connor Carroll and three of his friends received the suspensions because they were blocking the school's hallways. He says, "The administration told us 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 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."
Is a suspension too severe a punishment?
