The football star recently topped Forbes' 2013 list of America's Most Influential Athletes, and even though he played as a part-time quaterback behind the Jets' Mark Sanchez, he's still an athlete that Americans can't help but love.
“For a backup quarterback to be talked about so much is incredible."
In an E-Poll that was conducted over the past several months, 29 percent of respondents dubbed Tebow as "influential," which came to a surprise, considering that he was blamed for NY's 6-10 record last year.
But at the end of the day, since Tim didn't even play, he couldn't be at fault for what his former team accomplished during the 2012-2013 season, so we're just happy the 25-year-old quarterback is getting noticed!
Good job, Tebow!!
Wanna know who else made the list???
Take a look-see (below)!
