Tim Tebow visits old teammate who was injured in Orlando attack

Rodney Sumter isn’t Tim Tebow’s most famous former football teammate, but Tebow came to be with his friend after Sumter was shot in the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

Sumter was Tebow’s teammate at Ponte Vedra Beach Nease High. While Sumter is still in the hospital recovering from being shot three times and suffering two broken arms in the attack, he was visited by Tebow. According to Sumter’s Instagram post, “My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person.”

Sumter went on to play at Jacksonville University after high school, the Orlando Sentinel said. Tebow, of course, became a phenomenon at the University of Florida and for a brief time in the NFL.

Sumter was a bartender at Pulse. During his recovery Sumter quoted a Bible verse that Tebow has cited too, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Tebow would often write “Phil. 4:13” on his eye black. Here’s what Sumter wrote on Instagram:

“No weapons formed against me shall prosper. Life changing experience and I don’t want to do anything but share my testimony and turn my life over to the lord. I don’t have my phone so I can’t respond to you all through text or Facebook just yet. … But thank you so so so much for the heavy support that I have received. It definitely hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“Still in excruciating pain but, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ – Philippians 4:13.”
