As quarterback of the Florida Gators.
And before he even played a single down in the NFL.
His Denver Broncos number fifteen was the top selling Jersey in the entire country.
But he hasn't let the fame change who he is he remains humble and stays true to his Stanley strong Christian beliefs.
He's got a brand new book out it's called through my eyes.
Ladies and gentlemen please welcome Tim Tebow.
Let's talk about the fact that what a person is at the pinnacle of athletic successes you have been there are so many temptations.

I think before you get to that point you have to know how you're going to handle that you have to know.
Where you -- -- those boundaries what you're gonna do and how you're gonna handle the situations when you're thrown into -- and so for me the biggest things was number one my faith.

Having the support of my family.
You know when trials and -- comes when adversity hits and they want also when you're when you're when you're tested is doing different things you know.
Good bad how you can handle those situations and my family comes into play and they've always been so supportive of me.
You know you have been able to communicate your faith.
In a way.
That very few people in any -- entertainment.
Are able to do because it comes across with authenticity.
Want to go back to where that started for you tell me.
How did you become a believer what was the moment which that real I mean became real to you and and how did that change your life.
Well -- -- reliever.
When I was a boy and I was laying in my bed and I was nervous and scared that.
That I know -- and known -- my personal lord and savior and so.
I was scared that if I don't occur in the next day and -- had to crash.
I feared that I was gonna -- good balance the next morning I woke up -- and I grabbed my mom.
That's an -- -- Jesus -- in my heart that we and I got down on nominees on the couch and I seizes commend my hard for him in my -- and and from that moment on I knew I was from darkness allies and and that was the best moment in my entire life.
It's and there are a lot of cynics who say what that was just something -- did as a child and and you know you'll outgrow that but I mean here you are excited about the debates -- and he was a child here in the NFL for heaven's sakes that you -- outgrown that.
Absolutely not because my faith.
And it is the one thing they keep that.
That is absolutely.
What you know grounds me who keeps you motivated and you know I don't know what tomorrow holds but I know.
Who holds my future and that's what gives me peace -- forgive me satisfaction.
And and I'm so blessed.
Because of that's my surroundings.
People that have supported me.
And and that has.
Changed my life and we'll continue to change my life.
Because it's not about what -- do it's about who -- around and when you're surrounded by great people my great company.
It will affect you know encourage you know keep you motivated only keep guns right now he you've had this great family influence but then you leave the family you go to.
A university that it was full of pressure.
Did did people ever try to tell you hate him tone it down a little bit you know back -- and throttle back on the state stuff because it's really not becoming.
Superstar -- -- that happen absolutely.
It would definitely happen and there be a lot of people that say you know you don't need to show so much -- you don't need to write those Bible verses and the guys there who watch the view that and and I think for me the biggest thing was never -- making -- that.
That I had the love and respect to my teammates because if I did that in there and understand where my faith came from and you know they're gonna stand that ballot that was the driving force in my life.
Even above and beyond football.
And I think when I had that commander student wasn't something that I was preaching that question because it really wasn't it was something something that -- -- living.
And plain and simple and you know.
You know so many people talk about how you share your faith and do this it's not about.
What comes out of your mouth it's not about what you say it's about how you act and that's the greatest way to share your faith and -- what year out is by every day how you go about your business and how you treat people.
