Three Long Island high school students were suspended this week for "Tebowing," the stance made popular by Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow where he falls to one knee and rests his fist on his forehead.
Tebow is known to do the move during games as a form of prayer, since he is a devote Christian. The students did it in the hallway of their Riverhead High School as a prank, but as many as 40 other students followed their lead.
The school's superintendent, Nancy Carney, said that the mass "Tebowing" created an unsafe environment in the crowded school hallways, according to ESPN. She said the suspensions had nothing to do with trying to stop someone from praying, and she supported the principal's decision.
Two of the suspensions were later rescinded. The one student who remained suspended was warned ahead of time not to encourage his schoolmates.
