Tim Tebow

University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is the 73rd winner of Heisman Trophy and the first sophomore to win it!

Do you know that he has a powerful pro-life message?

In 1985 his mother & father moved to the Philippines, where they served as Christian missionaries. Hoping to expand their family, they prayed for "Timmy" by name.

Just before she became pregnant his Mom, Pam, fell into a coma after contracting amoebic dysentery, a bacteria transmitted through contaminated drinking water. Her treatment required a series of strong medications. As a result of those medications, doctors told Pam the fetus had been irreversibly damaged, and they strongly advised her to have an abortion.

She refused because of her faith, she said. (source: The Gainesville Sun)

Tim Tebow also mentioned this in an interview with ESPN.

It's great that Tebow won the Heisman, but I think that it's even greater that he won the Davey O'Brien Award. The Heisman represents only on the field accomplishments, while the O'Brien takes into account how a player performs on AND OFF the field. Now, THAT'S something I can respect.
