Tim Tebow passed for 231 yards and ran for 109 more as his Florida Gators defeated Oklahoma 24-14 in the college football national title game on January 8.

Tebow stated, "For me, everyday includes four things, "God, family, academics and football,in that order."

Mom Pam was apparently advised to have an abortion as medications she needed to treat amoebic dysentery would result in "irreversable damage" to her unborn child, Tim. 2007 article, "Mother of Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow rejected abortion."

"Many view Florida quarterback Tim Tebow as God, but apparently he doesn’t share that view. The son of missionaries and a devout Christian, Tebow often looks for ways to spread his faith. The most recent way was at the BCS championship game, where he wrote “John 3:16” on his eye black." Visit:
