Is Tim Tebow Gay? What Are His Age And Height?

American sports have had its fair share of heroes and villains throughout its long history, but very few players have been stuck in between, with a large group of sports lovers split on what side of the divide the player belongs to. One of those players is Tim Tebow, who, at a young age, became a former professional NFL player whose time in the league came to an early end for his outspoken nature.

Tim Tebow no longer plays football, and he has traded his helmet for a baseball cap, playing for New York Mets in the minor league. Although he no longer plays at the highest level of American sports, there is still plenty to learn about Tim Tebow, including whether he is truly gay, as the rumors have suggested.

How Old is Tim Tebow?

Considering his early exit from the NFL, one can be forgiven for thinking of Tim Tebow is a man who got too old for the sport, but that is not the case. He is a young man who was born on the 14th of August, 1987, in Makati, in the Philippines, to Pamela Elaine and Robert Ramsey II. Born to missionary parents, Tim Tebow was the last of five children, and he spent the first couple of years of his life in the Philippines until he was three years of age, and his family returned to America to live in Jacksonville, Florida.

Although he was homeschooled, Tim became a star quarterback taking advantage of a Florida law that allowed homeschooled students to play for a local high school team. He played for Allen D. Nease High School, and by his junior year, he was considered a prospective quarterback for a major college football team.

That belief was sealed during his senior year when he led Nease, which had a struggling football program until his arrival, to a state title, earning an award as Florida’s Player of the Year. At the end of his high school career, he joined the University of Florida, the college where his parents met.

Tim Tebow began his college career at the age of 19, starting his career for the Florida Gators football team as a backup player before going on to become one of the team’s most important players. He helped the team win the BCS Championship, and in his last three years for the team, he was named the team’s MVP, a record he holds to this day. Tim was also a recipient of the highly coveted Heisman Trophy, winning it in 2007, at the end of his sophomore year.

The controversy that would define his time in the NFL began before he joined the league. Despite a statistical record that showed him to be a great player, his ability to perform at the highest level for a long time remained questionable. When the 2010 Draft eventually came around, he was picked by the Denver Broncos.

Tim Tebow became an NFL player at the age of 23, and he spent two seasons playing for the Broncos, helping the team to the playoffs in the 2011-2012 season, before getting knocked out in the second round by the New England Patriots.

He was traded to the New York Jets after two seasons, where he played one season, playing twelve games and completing zero touchdowns. He had an unsuccessful spell with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles before he left the NFL after five years in the league.

Before he became a baseball player, he worked as a college football analyst for ESPN, a role he still plays till today. Tim Tebow began his career as a baseball player at the age of 29 when the New York Mets signed him after he held a tryout for teams in the MLB.

Is Tim Tebow Gay?

As a football player who held strong conservative views, and publicly announced that he was waiting to be married before having sex, rumors of Tim Tebow being gay became a recurring theme during his time in the NFL.

The rumor, which is based on the plethora of famous conservative personalities who have turned out to be gay, continued to swirl even as details of his personal life were enshrined in mystery. There were also not helped by the fact that for a long time, google search of the words ‘Tim Tebow kiss’ brought hundreds of images of him kissing and hugging men, before a picture of him with a woman shows up.
