Who is Tim Tebow?

It seems like nearly every week, I am reading or hearing about how unbelievable Tim Tebow is with his miraculous 4th quarter comebacks. He is the most discussed phenomenon of the NFL season.  It has definitely sparked my curiosity.   Who is he? 😉

Tim Tebow, is the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

  • Born: August 14, 1987
  • Height: 6’3
  • Weight: 245 lbs
  • Age: 24

Awards & Achievements

  • First round NFL draft pick in 2010
  • First-ever sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy
  • Winner of two NCSS National Football Championships
  • Winner of the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s best college quarterback
  • Two-time winner of the Maxwell Award as the nation’s top college football player
  • Winner of the James E. Sullivan Award as the nation’s most outstanding amateur athlete in any sport

It is quite amazing to see everything he has accomplished.  I still can’t believe he is only 24 years old.  His story is truly amazing.  Did you know, his mother Pam Tebow, became ill with placental abruption and the doctor’s suggested she have an abortion? Thank God, she didn’t make that decision.  She is a courageous woman. God bless her.

I don’t understand why Tebow gets all this negative press for his overt displays of religious faith.  So what, he has faith in football, faith in himself and faith in God!    He takes a knee in prayer and points skyward and this very small gesture has sparked a global media and its now called “Tebowing”.  Simply amazing.

Is he really that awful as a quarterback?  I can’t sit here and say yes because even though I love the sport I don’t know what constitutes a great quarterback.  I’ve heard about the legends but didn’t they all start at the bottom?  Is it that he is too young and lacks the experience?  Why is it that the first three-quarters he seems off and ineffective and in the fourth quarter “It’s Tebow Time.” Maybe he hears a divine voice that tells him “It’s your time to shine, Son.”  Whatever he is feeling at that moment is definitely working for him.  Will it last?  All I know is that…   My eyes will be glued to Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

Tebow says he is working hard every day to improve as a quarterback.

“Hey, I want to be the best player I can be,” says Tebow. “And I work hard every day to get better. I want to make every play, connect on every pass. But I don’t feel the need to look like the prototypical quarterback. A lot of guys look great on the field, but don’t win — even though I really respect those guys and can learn a lot from them. Pardon my language.”

The Denver Broncos should be thanking their lucky stars for Tim Tebow!

“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” – Tim Notke  {Tim Tebow, has lived by this quote since he was 6 yrs old.}  Amazing!

His religious style and distinctive character are both impossible to ignore.  He is definitely a force to be reckoned with…

Until tomorrow… Peace & Love xox
