Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow maintains a busy schedule these days, but he took some time out on New Year's Eve to give back. Tebow joined the country music band Florida Georgia Line as they renovated a charter school in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The effort was part of the Allstate Suger Bowl Service Project. There were over 100 volunteers on hand at Audubon Gentilly Charter School to install a jungle gym, basketball court and build a classroom.
The charter school serves 141 students in grades pre-K through second. Tebow remarked about the motivation that surrounded getting involved in this cause.
“We don’t do it for the glory,” said Tebow. “You don’t do it for the praise. You do it because it’s what’s right and it’s what matters.”
Tebow is as well known for his humanitarian work as he is for his sports accomplishments. He has been participating in mission work since he was a child and contributes to an array of initiatives through the Tebow Foundation.
Tebow is currently pursuing a career in professional baseball with the New York Mets organization and has his sights set on potentially reaching the major leagues in 2019. He is also a broadcaster covering college football for ESPN and the SEC Network.
Tebow became a national phenomenon at the University of Florida, where he won two national championships and the 2007 Heisman Trophy. He went on to play three seasons in the NFL and led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs in 2011.
