Tim Tebow Earns Sport in College Football Hall of Fame

By Movieguide® Staff

The National Football Foundation recently announced that former NFL star and Florida Gators alum Tim Tebow was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.

The former Gator quarterback and 18 former college players were selected to the Hall of Fame this year.

During his tenure at University of Florida, he earned the prestigious Heisman Trophy in 2007 and led the Gators to the National Championships in 2006 and 2008.

Despite his talent on the field, Tebow was best known for his outspoken faith. In 2009, he wrote “John 3:16” under his eyes for the National Championship game.

Despite a rocky career in the NFL, bouncing from team to team, Tebow never slowed down in sharing his faith.

Through the Tim Tebow Foundation, speaking engagements, and several books, Tebow’s mission became spreading the good news of the Gospel.

Last March, the New York Times Bestselling author released a devotional called ‘Mission Impossible: Go Create a Life That Counts.’

“I believe every single one of us can truly have a life that counts because as long we have breath, we have a purpose,” Tebow told CBN. “And the God of this universe has created us all unique, all different, but all with a plan and with a purpose. And I believe it is a mission.”

“Has God ever opened your eyes to a person, to a need, to an injustice, to a non-profit, to an organization, to a church,” he continued. “Has He ever pricked your heart to do something about it? If so, what He is probably saying is ‘I want you to meet that need’.”

Tebow also leaves constant encouragement on his Instagram page.

“A big part of it is stepping out in faith,” he said. “I wanted to encourage people to know that there is a mission for your life, so when you know that there is a mission for your life and God has given you a mission, then you know you have a purpose.”
