Quest to be the Best

In the busy world in which we live, many people start things and don't finish them. The starting quarterback for the Florida Gators football team is not one of them. Tim Tebow chose to return to college for his senior year when many people thought he would leave early to play in the NFL. He felt a sense of loyalty to his teammates and a responsibility to set a good example for kids who look up to him.

Tebow has been a shining star on and off the football field. During his three seasons at Florida, he's won two national championships and a Heisman award. He is also involved in the community, organizing a charity week for underprivileged kids and traveling to the Philippines to volunteer at orphanages.

Success did not come without some bumps in the road. Last September, the Gators lost to Ole Miss 31-30 in a shocking upset. At the post-game press conference, Tebow addressed the fans. He said a lot of good would come from the loss and promised fans that no team would play harder for the rest of the season than the Gators. Tebow pushed his teammates to be the best they can be, and the result was spectacular. The Gators won the remainder of their games including the 2009 national championship against Oklahoma.

Tebow has accomplished a lot over three years at Florida, but he is more determined than ever to keep setting goals. While he's a great player, what makes him so special is his ability to help others succeed. I give him extra credit for honoring his commitment and for working hard on and off the field.
