High School Athletes Suspended For Tebowing In The Halls

USATODAY.COM - A group of high school athletes on Long Island were suspended after Tebowing in the hall.

Jordan Fulcoly, Wayne Drexel and brothers Tyler and Connor Carroll of Riverhead High School were given one-day suspensions for their homage to Tim Tebow.

The school cited them for clogging the hallways after up to 40 classmates joined them in the Tebow craze.

"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," football and baseball player Connor Carroll told Cameron Smith of Yahoo's Prep Rally.

"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."

The school said they gave the students a prior warning but Carroll told the New York Postthat "we were never given any warning. They said they did, but that's completely false."

Riverhead School District Superintendent Nancy Carney said principal David Wicks made the right decision adding "this is not about religious discrimination. It is about being sure kids are able to get to class on time and keeping the kids safe and orderly. These students were warned and did it again. If the kids aren't going to abide by rules, there are consequences."
