Tim Tebow has been announced as the keynote speaker for this year’s 2016 Columbus Dispatch Scholar-Athlete Awards Event that is happening on June 1 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center Battelle Hall. This event, in partnership with The Motorists Insurance Group and OhioHealth will work together to recognize over 200 scholar-athletes from 117 different central Ohio schools. In addition to that, 19 of them will earn scholarships that will total over $84,000 and will be based on their performance both in the classroom and on the field. Having Tebow at this awards ceremony will mean a lot to the student athletes, and is of course going to be a very inspiring and touching experience.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner grew up in a homeschooling environment, but eventually went to the University of Florida for his college education due to getting an athletic scholarship for the institution. He entered the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected by the Denver Broncos who had him on the roster for two seasons before getting traded to the New York Jets. In April of this year, Tebow signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles so there is a good chance that we’ll be seeing him on the field again. The quarterback is often remembered for his iconic prayer pose after making a touchdown during games, and is also very outspoken about his faith and its importance to him.
Tebow will be speaking at the Greater Columbus Convention Center Battelle Hall coming up next month on June 1st in Columbus Ohio to take place in the Dispatch Scholar-Athlete Awards Event. His keynote speech will be one to remember, and it will be great to have him a part of recognizing the couple hundred student athletes from the local area.
