CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Tim Tebow is coming to Southeast Texas.
The Heisman Trophy winner and New York Jets backup quarterback is scheduled to speak Wednesday at an event in Corpus Christi.
The local YMCA is holding an event called “Celebration of Collaborations.” Local YMCA president Jim Scoville tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times (http://bit.ly/ZTSebk) that the event is expected to focus on the importance of hard work and the Christian faith.
Tebow is outspoken about his Christian faith and routinely addresses religious audiences. He spoke last year at an Easter service held near Austin. He was also scheduled to appear next month in Dallas before canceling after questions were raised about the church’s controversial pastor.
Corpus Christi is about 150 miles southeast of San Antonio.
