Students at Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park, N.Y., initiated a massive Twitter-bomb today, using the hashtag #TebowCallMatt to elicit a phone call from New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow to an injured student. Matthew Hardy, 17, was seriously injured yesterday in a car crash with a drunk driver.

Hardy’s brother expressed gratitude for all the support, and made a point of not telling his brother about it until the call came.

Two of Hardy’s fellow students, Christopher Stewart and Deanna Rivers, did not survive the crash. Another student, Bailey Wind, was also severely injured. Students are also Twitter-bombing on Wind’s behalf,  targeting Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin and English diver Tom Daley with the hashtags #MissyCallBailey and #DaleyCallBailey. There is no word from Franklin or Daley as of this writing.
