TEAMS: New York Jets

It’s not unusual for high school girls to be boy crazy over their prom date, but one Iowa senior had Tebowmania.

Rachel Bird of Kingsley-Pierson High School in Iowa took a Tim Tebow cardboard cutout to her senior prom. Bird asked the New York Jets quarterback to the dance via Twitter, but when she did not hear back the 18-year old cheerleader took matters into her own hands.

Making the cardboard cutout herself, Bird made sure to choose a prom appropriate outfit for Tebow. Dressed in a vest and tie, Bird created the cardboard cutout with poster paper and cardboard the morning of the prom.

A fan of Tebow’s fourth quarter comebacks, Bird is a devout Lutheran and doesn’t mind that Tebow isn’t bad looking either.

“He was a cheap date, and he didn’t talk much,” Bird laughed. “And when I asked him to stand in a corner, he did. I don’t think it even hurt his feelings.”
