Is his love life ever going to score a touchdown?
“It’s funny, because half the rumors, I’ve never even met the people,” Tebow, 24, said on Friday’s Good Morning America.
“I’m sure they would be lovely,” he added.
As fans do know, the football star, who was recently traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, is completely devoted to his faith. He also has a tradition of inviting a sick child to be his guest at games.
“Before a game I can … spend a few moments with someone who is dealing with so much more than I’ve ever had to deal with, and that’s extremely special for me,” Tebow told Robin Roberts on GMA. “Because I know what I do with that kid is more important than whatever I do the next three hours in that game.”
He adds, “My goal is to create a brighter day for as many people as I possibly can by being on this earth, and being someone that can be a good role model.”
As for speculation that he may become a preacher after his football career ends, Tebow demurs: “I don’t know what my future holds. I’m going to love playing football for as long as I can, but there’s a lot of other things that I would love to accomplish.”
