OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

American football fans and players know there is something deeply moving about the sport of football and what that spirit of competition means to American men and women is as important to them as liberty itself.

And Americans love sports heroes.

Recent footage of a plane full of football fans shows the personal inspiration fans get from the sport:

America is built on the hard work of unrestricted competition and those competitors need an outlet. College football is no doubt one of the arenas where modern-day warriors act out their gamesmanship, strategy, athleticism, and drive for personal and team victory.

And it is rare to get to the top of the sport.

“There are around 1.1 million football players that compete in high schools. Only 6.5% get a chance to play in NCAA Division 1, 2, and 3. Of those who are lucky enough to make it to college football, only 1.6% make it to the NFL. The primary reason is the players’ roster, as there are only 350 positions available in the draft,” according to sujuiceonline.

Clutch Point, has listed some of the top College football players, who include:

Jim Thorpe, Carlisle
Bronko Nagurski, Minnesota
Steve McNair, Alcorn State
Glenn Davis, Army
Doc Blanchard, Army
Doak Walker, SMU
Jim Brown, Syracuse
Jerry Rice, Mississippi Valley State.

This week officially, one more player to add to that list that many people will remember from when his Christian faith was attacked by the left, and how he played on and continued to rise above the vicious anti-Christian and anti-America attacks heaved upon him the Marxist left- and their media partners.

Tebow has always had a radical faith in God. According to his Bio, there is a good reason why:

Tebow was born in the Philippines to American parents. In the late 1960s, Tebow’s parents – Pamela Elaine (née Pemberton) and Robert Ramsey Tebow II – met while attending the University of Florida.

During that time, his mother was a freshman and his father was a sophomore. The couple married on June 12, 1971, before Pamela’s graduation from the university. In 1985, the family moved to the Philippines, where they served as Baptist missionaries and built a ministry.

During the Tebows’ stay, Pamela contracted amoebic dysentery and fell into a coma. While recovering, she discovered that she was pregnant.  The medications used to treat Pamela caused a severe placental abruption. Doctors expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion, which was illegal in the Philippines even in severe cases; the Tebows decided against it.  On August 14, 1987, Pamela Tebow gave birth to Tim Tebow in Manila. When Tim was three years old, his family moved from the Philippines to Jacksonville, Florida.

Tebow, whose name came up on social media again recently for praying on the sidelines, became a household name when he was attacked for kneeling in prayer before his games to give thanks to God.

But Tebow isn’t a victim; he went on to play amazingly well and now is being recognized for it.

Jon Doughtery reported for Conservative Brief about an exciting update to the list of the ‘greatest of all College football players’:

Former college football standout and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winner for his record-setting play at the University of Florida, got a career-defining surprise during a segment on ESPN ahead of Monday’s National Championship game between the University of Georgia and TCU.

ESPN colleague Joe Tessitore began by listing the 18 players and four coaches who were inducted into this year’s College Football Hall of Fame, but the list did not include Tebow, who played quarterback for the Gators from 2006 to 2009, during which he led the team to a pair of national championships in 2007 and 2009.

Tebow won the Most Valuable Player honor in the 2009 BCS national championship game, and he won the Heisman Trophy in 2007. In addition, he was also the first player in NCAA history with at least 20 rushing and passing touchdowns in a season.

After ticking off the list of this year’s inductees, a class that includes the University of Southern California running back Reggie Bush and Syracuse University defensive end Dwight Freeney, Tessitore noted on-air, “I forgot one name here.”

“The graphic was missing this because we also have a new Hall of Famer. He is arguably the most popular, the most successful, the singularly most impactful college football quarterback of the last generation or perhaps ever to play,” Tessitore said.

Then, as highlights from Tebow’s collegiate career began to play, Tessitore walked over to the former quarterback to inform him that he, too, had been inducted this year.

“Timmy, congratulations,” he said while giving him a hug along with fellow ESPN co-hosts Jesse Palmer and Dan Muller, in an emotional presentation.

“This is so humbling because there were so many people who were apart of this,” Tebow said about his time in college football. “This is about something so much bigger than a Pig Skin”.

Tebow, who is always so gracious never mentioned that while the left tried to smear him for their political agenda, he ended up being one of the rares champions who will be remembered for his service to God, and for his incredible sportsmanship- and for winning.
