Wando High West Ashley Punch
January 17, 2012 by staff
Wando High West Ashley Punch, Two teenagers were viciously beaten by a gang of students from a rival school following a basketball game after they pulled a ‘Tebow’. The boys, both aged 17, were repeatedly punched and kicked in the stomach in the parking lot after the game which their school team won.
The pair were attacked after Wando High School in Charleston, South Carolina beat West Ashley High by 20 points at the weekend.
The students had knelt to adopt the touchdown pose of Denver Broncos star quarterback Tim Tebow, according to The Post and Courier in Charleston.
One of the boys was left vomiting after being hit in the stomach and both had to be treated in hospital.
Lara Isaac, mother of one boy, told the local newspaper that it came after they mimicked Tebow.
CBS were attempting to harness Tim Tebow’s star power by reportedly inviting the quarterback to sit on its NFL panel on Sunday.
Sports chairman for the network Sean McMa**s told CNN: ‘We’ve had conversations with his people. We have a request in. We haven’t heard back.’
The Denver Broncos player has become a pop culture sensation for his prayer stance, known as Tebowing.
Hundreds of people have posted pictures on Facebook and Twitter of themselves Tebowing and it has even been adopted in marriage proposals.
He has been lampooned by comedian Jimmy Fallon and last night at the Golden Globes, TV presenter Maria Menounos imitated him on the red carpet.
She said: ‘They were scared for their lives. No one was manning the exits to make sure this wouldn’t happen.’
The rivalry between the schools has erupted into violence in the past.
Last year a parent of a Wando High student punched a teacher from West Ashley following a game.
Tim Tebow’s now iconic prayer pose failed to work its magic for him on Saturday as his team were booted out of the NFL play-offs by the New England Patriots.
They crushed the Denver Broncos 45-10 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Nearly 45 per cent of Americans believed God was actively helping Tebow on the football field, according to a CBS poll released last week.
