Star athlete Tim Tebow is no stranger to controversy and media attention. Throughout his long career as a college football player, a professional quarterback and later a baseball player, Tebow has seemed to attract headlines like a magnet. In the past he's drawn attention for wearing Christian messages on his eye blacks, praying on the field and for his personal political beliefs.
But now, a fan's account of Tebow and his interaction with a young woman have gone viral, revealing a side of the athlete's life that doesn't always get the attention it deserves.
Bystander Kevin Liddle shared the story on the Love What Matters Facebook page.
Liddle describes the "Tebow Mania" waiting for the athlete, who's now playing on a minor-league baseball team. Before the game, fans were lined up to take photos and get autographs from Tebow.
Kevin says he "would take some time to sign autographs and pose for a picture with anyone who asked him. He took more time to do this than any other athlete I have ever witnessed.”
But one fan in particular caught Tebow's eye, a teenage girl holding a sign that said "Night to Shine," which holds a special meaning for Tebow.
