Tim Tebow has done it all. He has become one of the greatest quarterbacks in Florida football, he has helped people in less fortunate countries, and he has made every Alabama fan in country jealous that he chose Florida over Alabama.
Now, after all this, he might help coaches recruit players that probably would not have got a chance to play. How can he possibly do this?
When Tebow played for Neis High School in Florida, he was still being home schooled. He did this by just playing football and nothing else.
Now other states, including Alabama, have decided to try to make what is going to be known as the Tim Tebow Bill.
This bill will give people that are home schooled and people that go to a private school, the right to play a sport at a public school, but not go to school there. I personally think that this is amazing, that one person can encourage a bill like this.
So here is the question, how can Tebow effect the recruiting process for coaches, by having a bill passed?
Well if you think about it, imagine how many people there are that do not get a chance to play the game of football because they are home schooled.
Also, think about the extremely talented people that play for a private school, and get overlooked because their school is not on the map. If this bill were to be passed, then coaches would get the opportunity of recruiting players that might be the future NFL Hall of Famers.
Some people do not agree with this bill because they think that if people want to play football then they can just attend the school. I can see where there coming from though. I still think that they need to give these players a chance to play.
I bet if you asked any major college football coach in the country, they would agree to this bill so they could have a bigger list of talented football players to choose from.
They probably would love for this bill to be passed just to see what kind of people make an impact in a high school that doesn't know how good someone is going to be.
So, is Tebow going to help coaches recruit from a wider range of players by just help pass a bill named in his honor?
I guess you can say he is but everyone has different opinions. So I guess we will just have to see how far this bill goes in different states. I just hope that these players that do not get a chance to play, get to show that they can play just like any other player in the country.
