Tim Tebow will be in Cleveland to blow the trumpet for Republicans.

Heisman Trophy–winning quarterback and all-around-lightning rod Tim Tebow is among the more atypical speakers being given slots at the Republican convention.

PayPal Co-Founder Peter Thiel also will speak, and there’s a gaggle of Trumps on the agenda: Donald’s wife, Melania, and children Eric, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Tiffany.

Other confirmed speakers are more in line with what you’d expect at a political convention: House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both Trump vice presidential contenders, are on the list of speakers, though Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is not — as yet, at least.

Tebow was a star at the University of Florida and won a string of games with the Denver Broncos before John Elway brought in Peyton Manning to helm the offense at Mile High. Tebow then bounced around the NFL with the New York Jets, the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, without much success.

Tebow, an evangelical Christian whose prayerful stance made his surname a verb, has long been thought to harbor political ambitions. Social media had fun with the Tebow selection — reactions ran the gamut from derision to defiance:

    Tim says on instagram that it’s just a rumor and shares his feelings about the country.

          Your welcome, David. Know that I happen to be very fortunate to make a full recovery and can’t thank enough all the people who prayed that were at churches out of state who didn’t know me, but knew my daughter and my grandson (just turned 10) who asked his sunday school teacher to pray on my behalf which meant a lot too! God also certainly put the right people at the right time and at the right place also. So glad God surely hears & answers prayers; especially children’s…happy I was cleared by Dr. for take-off. Won’t ever be taking health for granted that is for sure. Have been attempting to make better choices due to “NOT” wanting to go down that road a second time b/c once was enough to be “life changing”…Thanks for your concern and all who prayed/encouraged on this site also!:D God bless all on The TebowZone! (Apologize about going on and on..:D) Be encouraged b/c miracles happen!!!
