Jacob Rainey is 6’3″, 215 pounds, and he had a cannon for an arm as a high school quarterback in Virginia. The junior also ran a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash, and was drawing interest from several ACC schools (his highlight video is above). Sadly, Rainey got hurt in a scrimmage on September 3rd and had to have part of his right leg amputated. Now he’s become an inspiration for several football figures, including Tim Tebow, whose foundation has invited Rainey to attend the Bills-Broncos game Saturday.
“What an amazing kid and what an amazing outlook that he has,” Tebow said of Rainey, whose playing style was frequently compared to Tebow. “I’m so proud to have the opportunity to spend time with him and his family. We’re very excited about that.”
Tebow’s foundation is paying for the trip, and the Broncos quarterback plans to hang out with Rainey before and after the game. Rainey, who missed the entire first trimester at Woodberry Forest, returned to school after Thanksgiving break. His u...

He’s got folk hero status across the country. He’s winning when everybody was betting against him. He’s won over fans outside of football and some would dare to call him the ‘Great White Hope.’
He may win ugly, but it doesn’t look like his fans care. For them, he represents something bigger. He’s the underdog. He’s also a Christian underdog. Both types of underdog...
There was no Christmas Eve miracle for Tim Tebow, who instead found himself in a chilly hell in Buffalo on Sunday afternoon as his Denver Broncos got manhandled by the host Bills in a 40-14 loss.
For Tebow, who has risen to stardom via some some very mediocre passing performances, it was a showing that was even worse than usual. Completing 13 of 30 passes for 185 passing yards,...
The Broncos aren't America's Team, but quarterback Tim Tebow is America's favorite quarterback — in some ways.
Despite his team's long losing streak, Bills safety George Wilson had a good feeling about ending the skid against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.
Jairus Byrd and Spencer Johnson returned Tebow interceptions for touchdowns on consecutive plays from scrimmage in the fourth quarter to seal Buffalo's 40-14 rout of the Broncos on Saturday. The Bills snapped a seven-game slide...

Jairus Byrd and Spencer Johnson returned Tim Tebow interceptions for touchdowns on consecutive plays in the fourth quarter to help the Buffalo Bills snap a seven-game skid and seal a 40-14 win over the Denver Broncos on Saturday. Tebow finished with a career-worst four interceptions as the Broncos (8-7) fell into a tie with Oakland for first place in the AFC West.
Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson was a Tim Tebow believer long before the Broncos comeback kid of a quarterback became a national phenomenon and, in the process, put Denver within reach of its first playoff berth in six years.
U.S. Olympic skiing champ Lindsey Vonn says she's still not dating Tim Tebow ... but she's definitely open to the idea. Vonn was out in NYC last night, when she told us she met the Denver Broncos miracle worker at the ESPYs and actually became friends…
