Apparently there's a time and place for "Tebowing" and a high school graduation ceremony isn't it.

According to the Naples (Fla.) Daily News, a 17-year-old Florida boy was denied his diploma temporarily after taking a knee in prayer on the stage during his high school graduation ceremony on Saturday in the similar manner as the gesture made famous by NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

The boy's mother, who is a teacher at the school, eventually picked up her son's diploma, according to the Naples Daily News report.
