Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who now heads up the Tim Tebow Foundation – a charity dedicated to providing medical treatments for those facing dire needs – told a Fox & Friends personality he wouldn’t jump on the political bandwagon just yet, but that someday, such service might prove “intriguing” enough to compel him to run for office.
Fox’s Ainsley Earhardt asked him about a career in politics during an interview at his annual Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic in Florida. And his response?
“I don’t know in this time in my life,” he said, Time reported. “If there’s a chance you can make a difference someday in something, then that would be intriguing.”
Tebow, 28, who currently works as a college football analyst for the SEC Network, also called the 2016 presidential campaign season a cycle of ups and downs.
“It’s been crazy, hasn’t it? It’s been a whirlwind, watching everything,” he said, Time reported.
Tebow, whose public displays of thanking God on the football field grabbed the attention of media and fans alike, played three years in the NFL for the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and New England Patriots. The Philadelphia Eagles cut him last year.
