Top 12 Evangelical Christians in Sports Today
College football fans in Alabama usually want nothing to do with college football fans in Florida, aside from the occasional bar brawl or shouting match. But Florida's current football hero is the University of Florida's Tim Tebow, quarterback for the Florida Gators, who was raised by missionary parents and educated at home, and has led the Gators to consecutive national championships. Tebow's story has inspired lobbyists in Alabama who want a resolution allowing homeschoolers to compete in public school athletics. The bill's name: The Tim Tebow Bill.
Tebow has also inspired athletic homeschoolers nationwide, becoming the first homeschooled athlete to win the coveted Heisman Trophy. He was also the first sophomore Heisman winner, and is poised to be a force in college and professional football for years to come.
