Heisman Trophy winner, college football star and National Football League are among the titles bestowed to the quarterback in the Tim Tebow biography. Before beginning his professional football career with the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow was a stand-out college football player with the Florida Gators who led the team to two national championships and won many individual awards along the way.
Timothy Richard Tebow was born on August 14, 1987, in Makati City, Philippines. Though home-schooled by his mother, Tim Tebow participated in high school football at Nease High School in Pente Verda Beach, Florida, his hometown. Following two Florida Player of the Year honors, Tebow attracted the attention of the University of Florida.
Playing on an athletic scholarship from the Florida Gators, Tim Tebow's biography soon included a number of college football awards and honors. He helped the team immediately, leading them to an SEC Championship and victory in the 2007 BCS Championship Game over the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The 2007 NCAA Football season was perhaps the most notable of Tim Tebow's career. That season, Tebow picked up dozens of individual awards such as the AP Player of the Year, Davey O'Brien Award, Maxwell Award, NCAA QB of the Year and the top award of all, the Heisman Trophy.
Tim Tebow's 2008 campaign was equally as successful as he again helped the Gators win the SEC Championship over the Alabama Crimson Tide and a second BCS Championship, defeating the Oklahoma Sooners. He returned to Heisman contention with strong play, but was ultimately bested by Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford.
Helping the team lead the college football polls for much of the season, Tim Tebow finished his career at Florida in 2009 by helping them finish with a perfect 12-0 record. The Gators, however, fell in the SEC Championship Game to Alabama, but rebounded to win the Sugar Bowl over the Cincinnati Bearcats.
At the 2010 NFL Draft, the Tim Tebow bio added the name Denver Broncos to its listings when he was selected 25th overall in the first round. Playing under the New England Patriots quarterback coach Josh McDaniels, Tebow saw NFL action in nine games as a rookie backup. The Broncos finished the season with a 4-12 record and did not qualify for the NFL Playoffs.
