KINGSLEY, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa high school senior who took a cardboard cutout of Tim Tebow to her prom at Kingsley-Pierson High School has received a signed jersey from the NFL quarterback. Rachel Bird decided the Tebow cutout was a better date than no date for last month’s prom. FRS, an energy drink company Tebow endorses, heard about Bird’s “date.” Bird told The Sioux City Journal  that the company emailed her and said a signed Tebow jersey was on the way. It arrived on Friday. Bird says she was surprised by all the attention but is focusing on a more important task. She has a speech to deliver on Sunday as the valedictorian for her class of 28 students.
