Tim Tebow’s athletic skills and ability to play at a professional level are always up for debate but you will rarely find anyone questioning his character.
During a recent press conference ahead of spring training with the New York Mets, Tebow once again showed why he’s highly regarded as a role model.
When asked by a reporter how he juggles his career and charitable deeds, Tebow gave a thoughtful response that put sports and life into perspective.
“It’s not how I want to be known in my life,” Tebow said as part of a long answer about the importance of his professional life versus his personal life. “It’s not as a football player, as a baseball player. As someone that worked hard to accomplish those things. I want my life to be so much more than that.
“I want to be someone that was known for bringing faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. And that is something that is a life calling for me and so it’s so much bigger than sports.
“But I am so grateful for sports because it’s given me a platform to be able to share and love and care for people all over the world so, I wouldn’t trade that for anything.”
The former Heisman Trophy winner and quarterback of the Denver Broncos is attempting a transition to Major League Baseball. He signed with the Mets in the offseason and is expected to make his spring debut with the team soon.
