Reporters asked him if his charitable work was negatively impacting his performance on the field. His answer was quintessential Tebow.

“Not at all. I find all of those things help me so much more playing sports and playing baseball more than you could possibly imagine because what we do with the Night to Shine around the world for people with special needs in 11 countries, really all around the world, you are able to celebrate them and let them know they are special when someone realizes for the first time that they are loved and then they walk down a red carpet that can be life changing for people.”

“So to be able to (be) part of that and see that and now take that mindset to the field because so much of handling sports is about handling pressure.”
“Well what pressure do you have if you are 0 for 12 and your at the plate vs someone that is fighting for their life vs someone we picked up on the side of the street in Haiti because they are crippled or going through garbage.”
“How do you compare those things and for me its not a comparison and that’s why you are able to handle sports as a game because it still is. Even though we put so much time and energy in to it. I know that’s not why I am here. Its not my biggest purpose. Its not my biggest calling. Its not about how I want to be known for in my life. Its not as a football player or a baseball player (or) as someone who worked hard to accomplish those things.”
“I want my life to be so much more than that. I want to be known as someone who brings faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day during their darkest hour of need and that is something that is a life calling for me so its so much bigger than sports.”
“But I am so grateful for sports because it has given me a platform.”
