Tim Tebow is one of the most beloved — and belittled — men to fasten his chin strap on a football field. About a decade ago, Tebow helped the Florida Gators win two national championships with his vocal leadership and his rugged physical play. He also picked up a Heisman Trophy as the best player in college football — maybe ever. But there were always the naysayers, citing his awkward delivery or his run-first mentality, which “would never work in the pros.”
Many of them, truth be told, despised Tebow’s unabashed Christian witness and pro-life beliefs — he wore eye black with a John 3:16 Bible reference, for instance—and his habit of kneeling to honor his Savior became a verb: “Tebowing.”
Tebow, however, proved his critics wrong, taking the Denver Broncos on a miraculous run — in sports terms — of improbable, last-minute victories and a shocking overtime playoff win. Then Tebow’s football fortunes changed again.
