A few words from Tim Tebow on SPARQ training:
“My experience with SPARQ was great. My junior year in high school, I had the opportunity to come out here and compete and get better, and not only compete but see how I fared against other athletes, so it makes you want to work that much harder.”
Tebow gives some great advice for SPARQ athletes wanting to improve their scores:
“Come out here and get better. Don’t get discouraged, see what your numbers are, get out and start training, come back a few weeks later, and see how much you get better. I think it’s a great motivational factor for kids.”
Tebow’s underlying message at the event last weekend was not to settle and always seek improvement. It’s clear that he’s going to bring that mentality to his professional career. While many people criticize the Broncos for selecting Tebow with the 25th pick, I think the importance of having an athlete who will do whatever it takes to succeed is often overlooked.
As I’m writing this right now, on a Saturday morning, I’m sure Tebow is either working out or has already completed his first workout of the day. Many other Broncos players are on the same wave length – Brian Dawkins, Champ Bailey, Eddie Royal. These are the character guys that Josh McDaniels has been talking about.
I think it’s safe to say that the Broncos once septic locker room is cleared out, and this new group is ready to work.
