After spending four seasons together at the University of Florida, Tim Tebow and Riley Cooper have teamed up again, both on and off the field, with the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Monday, Tebow and Cooper sent a touching video to Pennsylvania high schooler Collin “Bear” Shank ahead of his Tuesday surgery to remove a recently diagnosed brain tumor.

“We’re just thinking about you, man, stay strong” Cooper says in the video. “Can’t wait to see you out here at practice.”

Just like Tebow in his younger days, Shank, a junior at Lampeter-Strasburg High School in Lampeter, Pennsylvania, is the starting quarterback for the football team. He also plays baseball.

“Praying for you buddy, stay strong,” stated Tebow. “We look forward to hanging out here, God bless.”

Here is the heartwarming video Shank’s mom, Lisa, posted to You Tube.

    Good to see Tebow and Cooper teaming up for a good cause.

    Good practice for when they team up for a Super Bowl victory.

    Somehow I believe Jay Feeley’s snotty, mean and hateful rant about Tebow
    will get more mainstream media coverage than this video.

    I hope I am wrong but I do not think so.

    I think this bodes well (if that’s the right phrase) for Tebow…chemistry on and off the field, and he has at least one guy in his corner in that locker room.

    • Sage says:

      Agree. He apparently hasn’t been compelled by the Eagles to stay silent, as the Patriots likely did.

    • LuitLipton says:

      Yes very cool Tim has a college teammate around… or as Cooper’s little Freudian slip “Timmate” lol
