Meyer hopes to take weight off Tebow’s shoulders

DESTIN, Fla. — Everywhere you turn this offseason, there’s Tim Tebow.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is visiting jails and speaking at youth rallies. He even assisted in the circumcision of poor Filipino boys while most college students were partying it up on spring break.
His legend spread to the golf course earlier this year at a charity event in Gainesville. Tebow stepped to the first tee and promptly crushed one 375 yards.
Florida coach Urban Meyer admitted he worries whether his star quarterback is being spread too thin.
It’s my job to worry,” Meyer said Tuesday during the SEC spring meetings at the Sandestin Hilton.
“But he’s made an impact on a lot of people. We could sit here and talk for three hours about Tim Tebow. The impact he’s made on our team, on our university, on a lot of people … it’s been phenomenal. He walks the walk, talks the talk. He does it all.”
