So Tim Tebow is a Virgin: College Football Star Confirms
Tim Tebow, Florida Gators college football star, has confirmed that he is in fact, a virgin; a debate that seems to have been raging for some time. He's not embarrassed about it, and is very proud of his Christian beliefs.
For some reason, Tebow's chastity admission -- which came at SEC media day on Thursday when Clay Travis of AOL's FanHouse.com asked if he was a virgin -- has caused great debate in the sports world.
Should we care that the most popular athlete in college football hasn't gotten his freak on?
Was it an appropriate question?
Should Tebow have even answered?
Tim Tebow has always used his platform as a respected and well-known football player to promote his beliefs, and he speaks the name of Jesus Christ often and does missionary work overseas.
The fact that he admitted to being a virgin, was for many, an affirmation of the fact that he is able to practice what he preaches.
Here we have arguably the most popular college athlete ever supporting abstinence, which, let's be honest, isn't considered conventional in today's society.
Isn't that the very definition of true leadership?
"I think you're stunned right now," Tebow joked with reporters after revealing his virginity. "You can't even ask a question. … I was ready for that question, but I don't think ya'll were."
Tebow is 21-years-old, and takes his role as a role model very seriously.
Tebow says he is willing to deal with the backlash, but at the moment he appears to be more celebrated than hated.
