Florida Governor Rick Scott will honor New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow for being a "Great Floridian" during a ceremony on Friday.
Tebow, a former Heisman Trophy winner who helped the University of Florida Gators win two national championships, will receive the award at the Clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, NBC Miami reported.
The award, which is given to a minimum of two people each year, is "designed to recognize and record the achievements of Floridians, living and deceased, who have made major contributions to the progress and welfare of this state," according to the Florida statute that established the Great Floridians Program. more >>

No one seems to question Tim Tebow's capabilities when it comes to inspirational speeches. So it was with open arms that Wichita State University men's basketball team, fresh off an upset victory over top-seeded Gonzaga during NCAA's March Madness, granted the Jets QB his request to talk to the players on their bus.
"This you will remember for the rest of your lives," said Tebow, whose plane was refueling in Wichita when the Shockers' bus arrived Sunday. "Some of you might go play in the NBA and have great lives, but this is the time you will remember … these are the special times in your lives regardless of what you do in the future."
As the result of Wichita State's 76-70 victory, the Shockers advanced to the "Sweet 16" and are scheduled to play La Salle on Thursday. The Shockers went into the tournament as a No. 9 seed. The team made five consecutive 3-pointers in the win that ousted the West Region's top seed and the nation's No. 1 team during the regular season. more >>
Tim Tebow is no stranger to television cameras, but one movie producer is giving the New York Jets quarterback the opportunity to star in his next film.
David Dginguerian, a producer of the 2012 film "Crossroad," sent a letter to Tebow in which he praised the Christian quarterback for being a positive role model.
"You have been a great idol for so many by your display of courage and strong faith that all things work together for those who love God and are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)," wrote Dginguerian, according to the letter obtained by TMZ. more >>
Pastor Miles McPherson of Rock Church in San Diego, who played defensive back for the Chargers in the early '80s, recently said that the National Football League has likely abandoned the idea of the Jets' Tim Tebow ever re-establishing himself as an NFL quarterback.
"It appears the NFL is convinced he can't play quarterback. From all I hear, they are convinced of that," McPherson told The Christian Post when asked about Tebow at the end of an interview discussing his new book, God in the Mirror – Discovering Who You Were Created to Be.
While admitting he has no insider information about Tebow's fate, when asked for his opinion about the evangelical Christian athlete's future in the NFL, he said, "It depends on what he wants. If he is saying, 'I'm only going to play quarterback,' it's very likely he will not play again. If he says, 'I'm willing to do something else (play another position)' then he will go some place because he is such a great leader, athlete, and competitor." more >>
Tim Tebow is a quarterback for the New York Jets for now, but, just in case things don't work out in the NFL, the owner of an Arena Football League team has offered him a job.
Brett Bouchy, owner of the Orlando Predators, recently told the Orlando Sentinel that the former University of Florida quarterback and evangelical Christian would be a welcome addition to his team, and suggested that spending some time in the AFL could help Tebow improve as a player.
"Tim would certainly want to first exhaust his opportunities in the NFL, but we'd love to have him," Bouchy told the Sentinel. "I think he would definitely improve as a quarterback in our league. more >>
