It seems that former NFL quarterback turned tight end Tim Tebow is skipping out on football this weekend to take in some incredible views while in Idaho. He also took time for a good cause before visiting the Gem State.
Tebow has been back on ESPN and the SEC Network in recent months as a commentator and analyst. But he took some time off this weekend to attend a special fundraising event along with some other notable celebrities before traveling to Idaho.
The former Florida Gators star helped raise money and awareness as part of the annual Red Bird Games. The yearly event is put on by The Brett Boyer Foundation. The foundation was created to honor one of country star Luke Bryan‘s family members. Bryan and his wife Caroline lost their niece at just seven months old to complications of Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. That’s when the Bryans stepped up and created the foundation, which just welcomed celebrities and donors to their annual event yesterday.
Luke Bryan performed at the event while many other celebrities made appearances as well. They included country singer Chase Rice, comedian Fortune Feimster, and fisherman Bill Dance to name a few. Of course, Tim Tebow made an appearance as well, and even put his coveted Heisman Trophy up for auction. Don’t worry, it wasn’t permanent, but some lucky bidder got to keep his Heisman Trophy for the next year.
The annual event took place at Luke Bryan’s home outside of Nashville, according to The Brett Boyer Foundation’s Instagram story. Tim Tebow also posted a series of photos from the fundraiser on his own Instagram account. Yet after a busy weekend for a good cause, Tebow headed to Idaho for fall foliage and some amazing views of nature in Idaho.
Tim Tebow Added as Max Kellerman Replacement on ESPN’s ‘First Take’
During the NFL offseason, Tim Tebow attempted to return to the NFL as a tight end with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Earlier this year, he called it quits on his minor league baseball career with the New York Mets farm system. It looked like it may be his last chance at an NFL carer after he earned an invite to the Jags training camp. But it wasn’t meant to be when the team made final cuts and he missed out on the final 53-man roster.
So in early September, he announced his next career move. Tebow made his return to sports broadcasting with ESPN when it was revealed he’d take over the open position on First Take alongside polarizing personality Stephen A. Smith. It’s not the first time the former player has made an appearance on the show. Tebow has been a guest numerous times dating back to 2017.
However, Tim Tebow is only taking over Max Kellerman’s position on Fridays. The show is currently using a rotating cast of analysts, including Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin who will join Smith every Monday.
