Tim Tebow paid a visit to one of the Orlando shooting victims in the hospital who was also a former high school teammate.
Rodney Sumter, a bartender at the Pulse nightclub, was shot three times and suffered two broken arms in the terror attack on June 12 that left 49 people dead. He was recovering at the Orlando Regional Medical Center where Tebow visited, reported NBC Sports.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and Sumter played football together at Ponte Vedra Beach Nease High School.
“My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person,” Sumter wrote on a post to Instagram.
The former University of Florida quarterback visited with other victims of the attack who were still in the hospital.
Social media applauded Tebow’s compassion and sounded off about the gesture.

@TwitchyTeam but isn’t he one of those “evil” Christians that the Obama administration says caused this? Kudos to Tebow.

@TMZ Awesome cause someone who wears his religion on his back may try and hide from issues like this. Tebow gets respect!
