RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Tebow-mania is in full swing in New York especially in Riverhead where several students were reprimanded last year for paying tribute to their hero.

With the Jets acquiring Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos, the students are now looking to hold a grand celebration.

Last December, twin brothers Tyler and Connor Carroll, along with their friends Wayne Drexel and Jordan Fulcoly,  got in trouble for “Tebowing” — mimicking kneeling down to pray (the quarterback’s signature move after a positive play) — in the hallways of Riverhead High School.

The twins’ suspensions were upheld; the other two were rescinded.

“We obviously can’t be Tebowing in the halls anymore,” Tyler Carroll told 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera. “I have a lot of kids come up to us saying, ‘Tebow!’ I have people on the Internet mention it to me again because it’s New York now.”

The high schoolers are now inviting Tebow to come to the high school for a “Tebowing” pep rally in his honor.

“I think we can get a lot of people to do it,” Carroll said. “I think it’d be the best one yet, just not in the halls.”

What do you think the students should do to celebrate? Let us know below…
