GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — Two New York high school athletes have been flagged for organizing several "kneel-downs" in tribute to Tim Tebow.

The mother of 17-year-old twins Connor and Tyler Carroll are impressed with the Denver Broncos quarterback. Tebow has led Denver to a 7-1 record and is a devout Christian known for kneeling in prayer on the gridiron.

The twins play football and baseball for Riverhead High School on Long Island. Mom Sherry Carroll says they had no religious intentions when they organized the kneel-downs this week.

About 40 students participated in the largest act of "Tebowing" on Wednesday.

District Superintendent Nancy Carney says the tribute posed a safety hazard by blocking others from getting to class.

Sherry Carroll says Connor served an in-school suspension Friday. Tyler serves his punishment Monday.
