Tim Tebow is a terrible quarterback. He isn’t tall enough. He isn’t fast enough. He throws like a junior varsity quarterback. He isn’t an NFL quarterback. People openly root for him to fail every week.
So why would I want my son to be like him? Tebow might not be a great quarterback but it doesn’t stop him from trying hard every day. By all accounts he is a great teammate. He believes in himself. He is a leader on and off the field. He doesn’t let what people say about him stop him from trying to be the best he can be.
He gives back to his community.
No matter what line of work my son goes into someone is going to be a naysayer. I want my son to be able to say “I might not be the best person in this position but I am going to come to work every day and work as hard as I can.” If he does that there is no way that he won’t be successful.
