Tim Tebow was one of best college football players in history. He was the first college football player to win the Heisman trophy as a sophomore, and he was also a part of two national championships during his time as a Florida Gator.
But despite his success, Tebow has always had to deal with adversity.
In his latest commercial for FRS, Tebow recalls some of the criticism he's received over the years, starting from his high school all the way to the NFL.
"They said I couldn't play in the league," said Tebow in the commercial.
As a prospect in last season's draft, Tebow was widely scrutinized for his throwing motion and how his success in college would not translate into success in the NFL.
Despite that, the Denver Broncos saw something in the young left-handed quarterback and traded three draft picks to acquire him in the first round of last season's draft.
This year, with the Broncos, Tebow started as the primary backup behind strong-armed quarterback Kyle Orton. However, a late season injury to Orton and with the team out of the playoff hunt, Tebow managed to find some playing time.
So far he's been able to show a lot of poise and promise during his starts.
In fact, his versatility as a runner was key in a big come-from-behind win against the Houston Texans in Week 16.
Now that the Broncos are looking rebuild their football team, Tebow appears to have done enough to be the guy they expect to play at quarterback this season.
Then we'll be able to see how far he can take his Denver team, with his strong work ethic and ability to make plays.
