Tim Tebow Usa Today Interview

Tim Tebow Usa Today Interview, Zack McLeod is Tim Tebow’s kind of player – and man. And vice-versa. The 20-year-old former high school football player won’t snag any touchdown throws from his hero Saturday at Gillette Stadium when the Denver Broncos’ on-field miracle-worker challenges the New England Patriots in an AFC Divisional playoff game. But McLeod just may catch a pass – and more compassion and love than he ever might have imagined.
As kickoff approaches, Tebow will do what he always does at pressure-packed times – give of himself. The 24-year-old quarterback will spend precious moments with McLeod , who suffered a traumatic brain injury during a preseason game in 2008. They plan to meet on the sidelines as part of the Tebow Foundation’s Wish 15 program that grants special requests for young people with serious medical issues.
“When we told Zack (this week), he just screamed, ‘Nooooo waaaay!’ ” says his father, Pat McLeod, who along with his wife, Tammy, work as Harvard University chaplains. ” We are hoping Tim will throw him a pass. Zack still has great hands.”
One thing is certain: McLeod will receive a Tebow hug.
The son of evangelical missionaries, Tebow – voted America’s new favorite athlete in the latest ESPN Sports poll – says giving a warm embrace and words of encouragement to those in need “puts everything into perspective” before an important game.
“We’re playing a game, and you want to win, but you know that it’s not the end of the world,” Tebow says . “Even a bad loss on the football field is better than spending a day (recovering) in a hospital.”
Tebow discussed a wide range of topics in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY this week, including how he copes with his fame, which seems to gain by leaps and bounds with each week.
