(ABC News) New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow responded to a Twitter campaign asking him to call a teen who was injured in a car accident that left two of his friends dead.

Tebow called Matt Hardy, 17, of Albany, N.Y., Monday night, about two hours after #TebowCallMatt started to trend nationally on Twitter, according to ESPN.

“Thanks to everyone who got #TebowCallMatt trending & helped connect us,” tweeted Tebow. “Matt truly inspired me. God bless y’all.”
