- Fun Faith Fact!: Tim Tebow's faith is so infectious that it inspired an entire internet meme
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 Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the Florida Gators, who was raised by missionary parents and educated at home, led the Gators to consecutive national championships, and Tebow's story inspired lobbyists in Alabama who wanted 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. He is currently the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and his prayer pose even inspired his own internet meme.
