Tim Tebow stands up for student punished for Tebowing at high school graduation
Earlier this week we told you about Chuck Shriner, the 17-year-old high school senior who got in trouble for Tebowing at his graduation last week. The stunt drew laughs and cheers from the crowd but not from the uptight and oppressive administrators at Fort Myers (Fla.) Catholic, who punished Shriner by briefly withholding his diploma and making him clean the school’s auditorium. (It should come as no surprise Shriner went to a private school.)
When Tim Tebow got wind of Shriner’s renegade move, his reaction was evident: Free Chuck.
“I don’t think his diploma should be withheld,” Tebow told the New York Daily News this week. “I think it was probably something a lot of people laughed at. I don’t know that it was necessarily appropriate, but I definitely think he should be able to graduate.”
Tebow should have also used the opportunity to remind you Tebowing will be in Madden ’13. We can’t confirm whether Fort Myers Catholic is looking for ways to have the game banned.
