Tebow, Party like a Rockstar

He may not actually "party" like a rock star, but dude has a posse:

Even though we’re a six-hour drive from Gainesville, yesterday’s post-practice Senior Bowl scene resembled the madness of The Swamp after Tebow scores five touchdowns.

Fans constantly screaming “C’mon, Tebow” or “Tebow, over here” or “Please, we love you Tim.” Tebow was available for, oh, about 26 seconds of interviews yesterday after being rushed from an NFL Network spot to an on-field photo shoot. Then two cops whisked him away while us media hacks tried to squeeze in a couple of questions. Dedication signs were everywhere.

Agent Jimmy Sexton represents high-profile football figures such as Philip Rivers and Nick Saban, but Tebow’s fanfare is unique.

“I don’t know if I’ve seen it quite like this,” Sexton said.

If you think Vinny Chase rolls with an entourage, Tebow’s posse trumps the famous HBO show. You’ve got father Bob, brother Robby, agent Sexton and at least one member from his Athletic Resource Management team, Will Bartholomew from D1 Sports Training out of Nashville, an autograph consultant from the Palm Beach area looking to seal a deal with Tebow, UF booster Bill Heavener and son Chase, who’s shooting a documentary on Tebow. Bill owns Full Sail University, an arts and entertainment school in Winter Park.

“We’re here to support Tim,” Bill Heavener said.
