Tim Tebow is an inspiration to millions of Americans, both on and off the field. His strong faith and personal character has helped boost his stardom internationally.
While Tebow is perhaps best known for his on-the-field performances, he is also known for his huge heart. Last year, he gave an 89-year old woman the surprise of her life, surprising her with a big hug!
And who can forget that inspirational moment when Tebow said a prayer and placed his hand on the head of an individual who had just suffered a seizure?
Now, fans of the football and baseball star will be happy to know they will be seeing a lot more of him, because he just signed a new multiyear deal with ESPN to continue providing football analysis for the SEC Network.

From Fox News:
“Over the last three years ESPN and the ‘SEC Nation’ crew have become like family,” Tebow said in a statement. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”
The 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will remain part of “SEC Nation,” the network’s traveling Saturday pregame show.
Tebow’s “unique experiences within the SEC and his broad national fan base are huge assets to ‘SEC Nation,’” stated Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president of event and studio production, on Monday.
Druley added, “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge and passion” to the network and has “surprised many fans with his strong opinions and engaging presence.”
The former Heisman winner from the University of Florida is perfect for ESPN, and his expert analysis will be crucial for the network in the years to come. While Tebow will continue his broadcasting career, he is still seeking to become a professional baseball player, currently playing for the New York Mets minor league team, the Columbia Fireflies.
