(UTSANDIEGO) — In an event that was part pop concert, part prayer meeting and part celebrity interview, New York Jet Tim Tebow appeared Sunday morning at a church-sponsored Father’s Day program at Qualcomm Stadium.

The 24-year-old quarterback spoke at length about his football career and his publicly devout Christian faith, which has made him known outside NFL circles – especially for his signature move, dropping to one knee on the field in prayer. It has been dubbed “Tebowing.”

Tebow’s 35-minute talk, delivered interview-style with the pastor of El Cajon’s Shadow Mountain Community Church, focused on role models, including his own father, and the issue of whether Christians can also be “real men.”
