Will Tim Tebow Speak out For Gay Children?
Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos quarterback, has a lot to say about controversial topics like marriage and abortion. However, a new petition asks the footballer and his teammates to sign the “It Gets Better” campaign and stand up to bullying and anti-gay violence.
Given that Tebow has made PSAs for the notoriously anti-gay group Focus for the Family, which preaches “praying the homosexual away” and is adamantly opposed to marriage equality, the request could be a bit of a stretch (to say the least).
Many professional players and sports teams across the country, including the Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles, have joined the “It Gets Better” campaign in the recent year. “These teams have spoken out against bullying and bigotry in our culture,” the petition adds, with almost 7,000 signatures.
Tebow played for coach Urban Mayer’s ‘Florida Gators from 2006 through 2009 on an athletic scholarship at the ‘University of Florida.’ He was voted captain in 2008 and 2009 because of his outstanding performance.
He also earned the ‘Heisman Trophy’ in 2007 and the ‘MVP’ Award three times for the University of Florida (2007, 2008, and 2009). He graduated with 5 NCAA, 14 SEC, and 28 University of Florida records, making him one of the greatest college football players of all time.
Tim was chosen in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. In December 2010, he started his first NFL game against the ‘Oakland Raiders,’ scoring the longest touchdown by a first-year quarterback in ‘Broncos history.
The ‘Houston Texans’ were his first opponent. During the 2011 season, he began as a backup quarterback, but during a home game against the ‘San Diego Chargers,’ he took over as the starting quarterback at halftime.
The following game, against the ‘Miami Dolphins,’ he was brought in. ‘Oakland Raiders,’ ‘Kansas City Chiefs,’ and ‘Chicago Bears,’ among others, were among the teams he defeated on the field throughout the season.’
Tebow hit a career-low after struggling to play against the ‘New England Patriots and ‘Buffalo Bills.’ However, against the ‘Pittsburgh Steelers,’ he promptly set a new career-high with a 316-yard touchdown pass.
Despite this, he had the lowest completion rate in the ‘NFL.’ Before taking up baseball, he also played for the ‘New York Jets,’ ‘New England Patriots,’ and the ‘Philadelphia Eagles.’
He signed a deal with the ‘New York Mets in September 2016 and made his debut in the ‘Mets instruction league.’ On the first pitch, he hit a home run.
In 2017, he began his regular season with the ‘South Atlantic League”s ‘Columbia Fireflies.’ The ‘St. Lucie Mets of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League’ promoted him soon after.
During his stint with ‘St. Lucie,’ he put up a 12-game hitting streak. He was promoted to the ‘Mets’ Double-A squad, the ‘Binghamton Rumble Ponies of the Eastern League,’ for the 2018 season.
‘Eastern League-All Star Game,’ he was also named. An injury forced him to sit out the rest of the season.
