Now that former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow wants to become a professional baseball player, the sports figure is hoping to wow at least one of his MLB prospects into offering him a contract.
More than 20 MLB teams will attend the Heisman Trophy winner's workout on Aug. 30 in Los Angeles, according to ESPN.
Tebow hasn't played baseball since his junior year at Florida's Nease High where he was a 2005 all-state baseball player and hit .494 with four home runs, 30 RBIs and 10 doubles, helping the team to reach the Final Four of the state's playoffs. more >>
From one Christian baseball playing quarterback to another, Russell Wilson has some advice for Tim Tebow.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner has been the topic of headlines and ESPN sports shows since he announced his plans to pursue a professional baseball career, something that Wilson has already accomplished. Now, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback has some wisdom to share with the NFL quarterback-turned-sports analyst.
Monday Morning Quarterback reported earlier this week that when Wilson was asked to share advice with Tebow about embarking on a career in baseball, he replied: "Hope he can hit a curveball. Baseball's pretty hard." more >>
The real-life story of arguably the greatest college walk-on, Brandon Burlsworth, hits theaters on Aug. 26th, in the inspirational film titled, "Greater." Actor Neal McDonough is now opening up about how the young athlete's faith touched everyone on set.
McDonough, known for his role as the villain in the hit TV show "Arrow," took a departure from the evil Damian Dark to take on the role as Marty Burlsworth, the brother and arguably biggest influence in the life of Burlsworth.
Starring McDonough and introducing Chris Severio, "Greater" follows the true story of Brandon Burlsworth, who is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Burlsworth dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks but was told he wasn't good enough to play Division I ball. Undeterred, Burlsworth took a risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Burlsworth displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. The awkward kid who once was an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched. more >>
Should Tim Tebow consider a career in professional wrestling?
WWE star Mike "The Miz" Mizanin believes so. The Heisman Trophy-winning football champion who has a solid career as a television personality could be a great addition to the world of wrestling, according to Mizanin.
"He would be the greatest bad guy we've ever had," the wrestler said on ESPN's SportsNation. "In the world, he's a good guy — he's so good. In the WWE, he would bad because he's so good. The WWE Universe likes bad boys." more >>
Once one of the NFL's most promising stars, former quarterback Tim Tebow, is now hoping to make a homerun with an MLB team and he's already selling autographed baseball memorabilia before landing a contract — stirring up a firestorm of criticism.
Tebow will be working out for all 30 big-league teams later this month but is considered to be a longshot by some sports analysts. The biggest dust-up, however, centers on Tebow's move to market baseball collectibles.
Jason Whitlock, co-host of the Fox Sports show "Speak for Yourself," says the sports figure's decision to sign and sell baseball bats and baseballs is in bad form and shows disrespect to baseball players, especially since Tebow has yet to get signed to an MLB team — let alone play his first game. more >>
Tim Tebow's smile might be just as recognizable as his name, but that doesn't mean the football player-turned-motivational speaker is immune to negative thoughts and feelings.
In a Rolling Stone interview, the Heisman trophy winning University of Florida football champion spoke about dealing with those trials at different points in life.
"Whether you're sitting on the edge of the bed and you're thinking 'there're 32 [NFL] teams and nobody wants me' or 'no one wants me to do what I want to do.' Or you get another opportunity, and you don't make it," Tebow revealed. "I've been cut four times. Well only three, but traded once, so it kind of counts as four." more >>
