“It was very nondescript,” his server said, declining to give his name. A hostess at the restaurant said the staff didn’t know it was him until he left and they saw his credit card receipt.

At a time when athletes and celebrities are routinely called out for their generosity, or lack there of, the Black N Bleu staff declined to comment on Tebow’s tip. Gratuity is a hot topic in the midstate with news that Harrisburg native LeSean McCoy left just $.20 on a a $61 bill at a Philadelphia burger joint.

“I can’t discuss that, but it wasn’t 20 cents or whatever,” Tebow’s server said.

Tebow and the “SEC Nation” traveling Saturday morning college football show are scheduled to broadcast live from Gainesville, Fla., for a matchup between Florida and Kentucky this Saturday. Tebow is joined on set by Joe Tessitore, Marcus Spears and Paul Finebaum.

Tebow won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and led Florida to national championships in 2006 and 2008. He was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round (No. 25 overall) of the 2010 NFL draft and played three seasons with the Broncos and New York Jets. Tebow had an 8-6 record as a starter and led Denver to a playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011.

Tebow was released by the Jets before the 2013 season and hasn’t played since. He was hired by ESPN the following December as an analyst for the fledgling SEC Network and at the time said he was still in pursuit of a return to the NFL.

Tebow was a polarizing figure during his NFL tenure, known as much for his faith as he was for football. The Broncos turned heads by calling Tebow’s name in the first round of the 2010 draft, but the quarterback had bright moments in his lone starting opportunity, ranking second in the NFL with six game-winning drives in 2011.
