New ESPN analyst Tim Tebow helped co-host "Good Morning America" Friday morning, discussing his faith, his aspirations to continue playing in the NFL, and his predictions for the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII.
Tebow, who was recently hired by ESPN to serve as their new college football analyst for the SEC Network, partook in many light-hearted, entertaining games and interviews on the Friday airing of the ABC morning show. The former NFL quarterback appeared throughout the show participating in various segments, including a Super Bowl snack cook-off with Joe Montana and a discussion with former 49er Steve Young on the Super Bowl.
The new ESPN analyst also sat down with "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts to discuss his future in the NFL. Tebow stopped playing for the Denver Broncos at the end of the 2011 season to play one disappointing season with the New York Jets. He then played a pre-season with the New England Patriots only to be dropped from their roster in the regular season. Although Tebow now has a solid analyst gig for ESPN, he told Roberts he would still like to play as a quarterback in the NFL at some point in the future. more >>
Mormon political pundit Glenn Beck, Hillsong pastor and anti-human trafficking activist Christine Caine, and the 40th president's adopted son and conservative columnist Michael Reagan will speak as part of Liberty University's spring convocation series.
Johnnie Moore, the Viriginia-based school's senior vice president of communications, said that the school annually offers dozens of prolific leaders in church, business, science and culture a platform to speak with young evangelicals.
"Liberty's convocation is the largest weekly gathering of Christian young people in America. There's no other environment where you can speak to more 18 to 22 year olds each week," Moore told The Christian Post. more >>
Tim Tebow has reiterated his interest in being a quarterback in the NFL after it was announced this week that he has been hired by ESPN as a college football analyst for the SEC Network.
The former Florida Gators quarterback said during a conference call with reporters on Tuesday that although he is grateful and excited for his new opportunity with the ESPN network, he still wishes to continue his career as a quarterback long term. The 26-year-old began playing for the NFL in 2010 for the Denver Broncos, and then moved on to the New York Jets where he endured a tougher spell. Over the 2013 preseason period he played with the New England Patriots but was dropped before the regular season got underway.
Tim Tebow will be returning to the college football world in 2014 following an announcement from ESPN that the former quarterback has signed on for a multiyear deal with the Southeastern Conference network.
Tebow, who has not played professionally since a season warming the bench with the New York Jets in 2012, had been the subject of rumors from the Big Lead earlier this month that he would likely end up with a broadcasting position.
The article correctly suggested that the former Florida Gator would take a position with the SEC network that will be launched next August at a Texas A&M-South Carolina game. With Tebow joining a team that currently consists of Rece Davis and Paul Finebaum, the show will likely be looking for one other co-host. more >>

ESPN's Southeastern Conference (SEC) Network, CBS Sports, and Fox Sports are currently all trying to recruit the former Heisman Trophy winner, according to The Big Lead.
ESPN will debut its SEC regional network next August. Its four person lineup currently consists of host and Alabama alum Rece Davis and Paul Finebaum. Tebow, who won two national championships with the Florida Gators, would fill spot three with another SEC athlete rounding out the quartet. more >>
Despite facing a challenging time in his football career over recent seasons, Tim Tebow has assured that he is happy and well. The football star is crediting his persistently positive outlook to his faith, saying that his identity has never been defined by him being a football player, but instead comes from who he is in Jesus Christ.
"I've never found my identity in who I was as a football player. I found my identity in who I am in Christ. And when you find your identity as a Christian, then regardless of your status, or your fame, or your popularity, or your position, that never changes," Tebow told Sports Illustrated. "So the roller-coaster that the world has always looked at my life and viewed, I'm very thankful that I don't have to live it."
"I'm the best now that I've ever been," the currently unemployed athlete added. more >>
