Quarterback Tim Tebow is an incredibly popular player, but for all his legions of fans his "aw shucks" attitude and public displays of faith have also rubbed some people the wrong way.
The family of four-year-old Preston Winslow will not be having any of that.
The North Carolina youngster, who tragically lost his battle with leukemia and passed away on May 19, 2012, was all smiles at least for a short time in March after getting to meet and play a little catch with his idol.
Shortly after friends of the family reached out to Tebow's agent Winslow's mother received a surprising phone call according to a report at the time by WTVD-TV via The Huffington Post.
I answer it and I'm like, 'Hello?', and the person on the other end was like, 'Hi Celeste, this is Tim Tebow,' and in shock, I was like 'No way'.
Tebow invited Winslow and his family to his training facility in Tampa, Florida, where the third-year pro spent the day visiting with Preston and tossing around the football as Celeste Winslow relayed to WPTV.
"It amazes me at how much energy he had out there playing and running around. He didn't even want to stop," said Winslow.
As Preston passed the football back and forth with Tebow. The Bronco's quarterback high fived Preston and said, "That was so good buddy. Good job!"
Say what you will about Tebow as a player, but giving a child whose short life was filled with far too much pain and sorrow a day of happiness is an act that is simply unimpeachable.
