Say what you will about Tim Tebow‘s football skills, but there’s no doubt about how amazing a person he’s always been!
The former NFL quarterback was vacationing in the Bahamas when he heard a former high school football teammate, Rodney Sumter, had been injured in the horrific Orlando attacks at Pulse nightclub.
So, quietly, the former pro athlete rushed back to Florida to check in on Sumter in the hospital, creating this moment that the attack victim shared (above)!
He captioned the pic, too (below):
“My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person.”
Sumter, who broke both his arms in the attack after being shot three times, played high school football with Tebow in Jacksonville before the star quarterback went on to the University of Florida.
Sumter stayed behind and played football at Jacksonville University before moving to Orlando, where he’d been working as a dancer and bartender.
But obviously, these two have remained friends, and we’re loving it! So sweet!
