Tim Tebow Remains Positive After Leaving NFL; Media Honors Him As “America’s Most Influential Athlete

  • He prayed. He won. And then he disappeared. Will we ever see Tim Tebow in the NFL again? ~ Thomas Lake

He arrives early, wearing a white T-shirt and red cotton shorts, and during the handshake he reaches out with his free hand, as if to say, I’m open to hugging, but I’ll leave it up to you. You would like him. He would like you. You would like Tim Tebow because he actually looks at you, instead of the floor, or the cars rolling past on Santa Monica Boulevard, and his mind seems nowhere else but here, with you, in this conference room at a law firm in Los Angeles, at 2:25 p.m. on a Tuesday in late October. He asks how your flight was, and are you hungry, or thirsty, and when you take a glass of water he asks would you like some ice, and you say no, and he says yes, of course you would, and pours ice in another glass.

This meeting has taken five months to arrange. He apologizes for having declined several previous interview requests and having told his close friends and relatives to do the same. Tebow loves to talk, with anyone, anywhere, about things both trivial and profound. But his fame has overshadowed his football career, threatening to destroy it, forcing him into seclusion. Football executives who consider signing him fear they will also be signing the Tim Tebow Circus, an unnerving combination of satellite trucks and fan-sponsored billboards, and Tebow cannot afford to appear to be seeking more attention. A note to those executives: If Tebow and his advisors had their way from the outset, this story never would have been written.

ANYONE COULD PREACH THE GOSPEL. BUT IF TEBOW COULD DO THESE THINGS WHILE EXCELLING IN AMERICA’S MOST POPULAR SPORT, THE EFFECTS WOULD SPREAD FAR AND WIDE.
