-- MIAMI (Jan. 25, 2013) – After a storied college football career at the University of Florida, winning two national titles and a Heisman Trophy, Tim Tebow was controversially selected in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. Along with his football skills, Tebow brings an ardent following of fans that are drawn to his persona as a clean-cut athlete and a good Christian. Reports even suggest he is (gasp) a virgin. Despite only playing a few games during his first year with the Broncos, he led the NFL in jersey sales and quickly became a nationwide fan favorite. He steered Denver to a playoff win during his second season, but was later traded to the New York Jets and spent most of the recent season riding the bench.
Tebow is a controversial athlete. Fans love him, but because he’s a poor practice player who seems to prefer running over passing, many analysts believe (some vociferously)
he can’t be an NFL quarterback. Some critics say he too overtly wears his religious beliefs on his sleeve. Others just don’t like him. Today, it appears that the Jets will release him, and his NFL career is in question. Rumors abound that he may end up with any of a half dozen teams next year or possibly in the Canadian Football League.
“I wonder what will become of Tebow and his brand,” said PR consultant John P. David. David is founder and president of David PR Group in Miami and has more than 20 years of experience in the media relations industry. “Has he already had his 15 minutes of fame? Will his off-the-field image continue to outweigh his on-field performance?
Has Tim Tebow’s fame actually hurt his football career?”
David recently published a blog post on his blog site http://miamiprblog.com
comparing Tebow to other public figures more famous for who they are outside of their respective careers. To read the entire post visit http://miamiprblog.com/post/41281488084/whoistimtebow
