One of the largest athlete booking and sports marketing agencies in the country, AthletePromotions assists corporations, universities and churches in booking Tim Tebow speaking engagements, corporate appearances, autograph signings, VIP meet & greets, and endorsements.
Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is one of the most decorated college football players we've ever seen. A man of genuine character and pure class, Tim Tebow has been very open about his Christian convictions and as a follower of Jesus has always expressed his gratitude to his Lord and Savior. A record setting Heisman Trophy Winner and future NFL star, Tim has defined what every athlete should strive to be, on and off the field. Besides being a scholar and athlete, Tim is a motivational speaker on teamwork, inspiration and his passion for Christ.
While most college students are enjoying spring break on the beach, Tim spent his time creating The Tim Tebow Foundation, envisioned by him while an undergraduate at The University of Florida (UF). His desire was to launch the Foundation even while a college student but NCAA regulations for athletes prohibited him from doing so. Instead, Tim, along with several other UF students, Ryan Moseley and David Sinopoli, launched First and 15 under the auspices of the Office of Student Government and with NCAA approval. First and 15 allowed Tim to mobilize hundreds of students on campus and UF boosters for a number of important charities. It raised funds for Uncle Dick’s Orphanage in the Phillipines and Shands Hospital pediatric cancer center in Gainesville.
The vision for the Tim Tebow Foundation will initially focus on serving Christ-centered orphanages around the world. They will establish partnerships with ministries serving in adult and youth correctional facilities. The Foundation leadership will use Tim's platform to challenge people to public service and also continue to support First and 15 in Gainesville, FL where Tim sharpened his vision for serving friends in need. In the future, the Foundation wants to consider supporting a network of Tebow Boys Homes, support efforts to rescue children from child slavery and prostitution around the world and continue to support global efforts in taking the Good News of Jesus Christ, in both word and deed, to children and families going through difficult times.

One of the largest athlete booking and sports marketing agencies in the country, AthletePromotions assists corporations, universities and churches in booking Tim Tebow speaking engagements, corporate appearances, autograph signings, VIP meet & greets, and endorsements. They recently booked Tim to speak at Christian college, Union University in Jackson, TN on April 19, 2010. Founder of AthletePromotions, Ryan Totka says, “Tim Tebow, Kurt Warner and Tony Dungy are among the most requested Christian speaker booking requests they receive. It’s great to see people like Tim changing people’s lives so early in his career. More college athletes should mold their work ethic and passion for helping people like he does”.
Tim recently signed with sports agent Jimmy Sexton at Sexton Sports who negotiated his first big apparel and shoe endorsement deal with Nike worth over $300,000 per year, plus incentives. Tim was also chosen at the cover athlete for EA Sports’ NCAA 2011 which will be released later this summer. While most athletes would brag about being chosen to grace the cover, it meant a lot more to Tim than that. With a recent interview with ESPN.com, Tim said "These games give these kids who are going through some of the most dramatic things in their lives, they have brain tumors, they have cancer, they're going through radiation and chemo, but these games give these kids the opportunity to get them out of their lives for a few minutes and just dream and have fun and play and put smiles on their faces," Tebow said. "That's what it's all about for me."
One thing for sure is that Tim Tebow's agent is going to be very busy negotiating many more lucrative endorsement deals, as he gets ready to do great things in the NFL. He’s going to be a marketers dream athlete when it comes to product promotion.
As the NFL draft is right around the corner, Tim continues to rigorously train and prove to all the critics that he will be a star quarterback in the NFL, motivate kids and inspire all those around him.
