Great Moments: The Chosen One

As this is the first week of Tim Tebow's last season as a Gator, it is interesting to watch his final season as a high school QB again. The similarity, and even consistency, of his high school story to his college career is uncanny.

-his "toughness" as a player
-playing with injuries
-being grounded despite all the attention
-getting the crowd fired up
-being inconsolable after a loss
-all the bracelets
-the mission trip to the Philippines
-rallying his team with "it's our last year!"
-and even being shirtless

What is particularly interesting is to hear so many coaches compare him with other great QBs:

Steve Young
Michael Vick
Brett Favre
Kenny Stabler
Joe Namath

In the video, Tim states that he and his family prayed to figure out which coaches really believe what they said about him. As he begins his final season as a college QB, they are probably praying the same about NFL coaches and GMs.
