Regardless of the statistics, the national titles, or the Heisman Trophy that Tim Tebow won, he is
a one-of-a-kind leader.
Tim Tebow was one of the best college quarterbacks of all time who backed it up with his
leadership and dedication to the game. While many have strong feelings towards Tebow,
regardless if they are positive or negative, the one thing that most would agree about with Tebow
was he genuinely cared about his team and the program.
One of his most famous moments came after a loss in 2008 in which he said
“You have never seen any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of this
season, and you’ll never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody
the rest of this season. You’ll never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season.
Gator fans and the program have immortalized this speech.
As a leader, Tebow was a great communicator who was able to get into his teammates’ minds and
was so passionate about the team and the program that he would be able to convince his
teammates that he was there for them and he would lead them into battle.
Overall, Tim Tebow is a courageous leader. He works hard to improve the things within his
control and ignore aspects that are out of his power. He is willing to act for the organization’s
good despite the risks, dangers, or fears of failure.
