Evangelist Franklin Graham called Christian NFL player Tim Tebow, who will be playing for Philadelphia Eagles this season, one of his favorite players and said he is a "true leader both on and off the field."
"Football season is around the corner! I don't have a favorite team, but I do have favorite players that I follow. One of them is Tim Tebow," Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a post on his Facebook page on Friday.
"He's not only a great quarterback who can throw and run the ball, but he's a true leader both on and off the field," Graham wrote. "Most importantly, Tim lives out his Christian faith at every turn."
