Tim Tebow is only 26, but he has already accomplished a lot in his life. He was the first college sophomore to ever win the Heisman Trophy. He was a first round NFL draft pick in 2010 and ended up signing a 5 year contract with the Denver Broncos.

He was subsequently traded to the New York Jets in 2012 and released by them a little over a year later, then signed by the New England Patriots who in turn released him only a few months later. So life hasn't been all flowers and fireworks for him.

What has sustained him through it all has been his strong Christian faith. He has preached in schools and churches in the Philippines and here in the U.S. he has shared his faith in prisons, schools, churches and youth groups. That same faith has also made him a target for satire and for criticism but he perseveres.

He is now a college football analyst for ESPN and has become an occasional host and reporter for Good Morning America with the ABC network. He also stays incredibly busy with his Tim Tebow Foundation whose mission is- "to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need." The foundation's many outreach programs are working to make the lives of people around the world just a bit better.

Not bad for a 26-year-old, huh?
