Heisman Winner Tim Tebow

“All your sons will be taught of the LORD; and the well-being of your sons will be great.” (Isaiah 54:13)

Congratulations to Tim — Tim Tebow — for winning the 2007 Heisman Trophy as the most outstanding college football player this year. I think you all should know about this guy even if you don’t watch football. What’s so special about Tim Tebow?

Besides the fact that Tim Tebow is a Christian, he’s also the son of a missionary, and he himself has taken part in significant missionary work in Philippines. Also, Tim Tebow was homeschooled, not only dispelling the myth that homeschool kids are trapped in the house all day long, but proving that a homeschool kid can actually become one the best athletes in the country.

Tim Tebow has already won a national championship last year, and this year he becomes the first sophomore to win a Heisman Trophy. Many sports publications have enthusiastically labeled him to have the potential to be one of the greatest football players ever. Yet when he ranks his priorities his life, his top three priorities are God, family, and academics. Football is the fourth.

Congrats to Tim, again!
