Said Sumter in an Instagram post: “My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person.”

The Orlando Sentinel reports:

After Tebow and Sumter competed together at Nease High, Tebow won two national titles and the Heisman Trophy while leading the Florida Gators. Sumter played at Jacksonville  University before eventually moving to Orlando to work as a dancer and bartender.

In addition to meeting with Tebow, Sumter posted a picture of his visit with Orlando City captain Kaká, former MLB star Johnny Damon and Gov. Rick Scott while holding an #OrlandoUnited shirt being sold by local pro sports teams to raise funds for those impacted by the shooting.
