    • Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is scheduled to appear at the annual Central Illinois Fellowship of Christian Athletes Home Team Banquet on May 4 at the Prairie Capital Convention Center.
    • Tebow, 26, played football for the University of Florida and won national championships with the team in 2006 and 2008. He won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, becoming the first sophomore to win the award given to college football’s top player.

      Tebow was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He started 14 regular season games and two playoff games for Denver in his first two seasons in the league. Tebow was traded to the New York Jets in March 2012, where he received little playing time in one season.

      He signed with the New England Patriots in June 2013 but was cut before the season began. He currently serves as a college football analyst for ESPN.

      He also is the namesake of the Tim Tebow Foundation, which has a mission to “bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.”

      For information on hosting a table or sponsoring the event, call the local FCA office at 241-2020.
