Tim Tebow is an American professional baseball player, a former professional fotball quarterback, and a broadcaster. He plays for the New York Mets. Famous for The Tebow Rule and Tebowing, this baseball player seems to be one of the most influential athletes in the world, as ESPN claims. Let’s learn more about his life, career, and earnings.
On 14th August, 1987, in Makati, Philippines, Pamela Elaine and Robert Ramsey Tebow II welcomed their son Timothy Richard Tebow into this world. Before giving birth to Timothy, his mother Pamela was prescribed a medication to treat amoebic dysentery, which caused a severe placental abruption. This made her doctors advice her to have an abortion, which was illegal in the Philippines, but Pamela didn’t take the advice, and she gave birth to Timothy. Timothy has four siblings, and all five children were homeschooled by their parents. However, at that time, there was a law in Florida, which allowed home-schooled children to be part of the local high school team. This played out well for Tebow, who joined Trinity Christian Academy team. Later on, he went to play as quarterback for Allen D. Nease High School team. That is he where his running and throwing abilities were first noticed. It also earned him numerous awards, including All-State honours, and he was named Florida’s player of the year and Florida Mr Football. Tebow was included in ESPN documentary Faces in Sports, and in Sports Illustrated Faces in the Crowd page. Tebow attended the University of Florida, where he was a captain of Florida Gators football team in 2008 and 2009. There were many awards he got playing college football, which include the Heisman Trophy, Davey O’Brien Award, and other. During this time, he held 5 National Collegiate Athletic Associations and 14 Southeastern Conferences.
In 2010, Tebow was selected in the first round of 2010 NFL Draft, by Denver Broncos. Even though he signed a 5-year contract with a base value of $11.25 million, he left Denver Broncos the next year. His performance wasn’t satisfuing. Same year he singed with New York Jets, and in 2013 same reason caused him to be released by the team. The third team he signed with were New England Patriots, but he stayed there for just three months. After all this, he went into broadcastion on SEC Network. In 2015 he tried his luck with Philadelphia Eagles, but was released same year. He didn’t play football professionally ever since, and now he is a professional baseball player with New York Mets organization.
Tebow is very outspoken when it comes to his Christian beliefs. He preached at schools, prisons, churches, meetings, conferences, and so on. He also claimed that he believes in faith-based abstinence, and has maintained his virginity.
Tebow and other University of Florida students created First and 15, a foundation to give back to others. He raised money for numerous causes, including Uncle Dick’s Orphanage in Philippines, Shands Hospital pediatric cancer center in Gainesville, and other. He is very involved in helping others, especially the ones in the great need.
In January this year, Tebow announced his engagement to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
Tim Tebow’s net worth was estimated up to $12.5 million. Most of his earnings come from him playing baseball, and before that football. Also, there are many endorsement deals he signed, which add to the income. We hope to see more of him, and wish him good luck with his career.
