Tim Tebow Special Highlights His Faith, Life Achievements
E! television network's special on New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow highlighted his influence and the events that led to his superstardom as told through his friends, former teammates and reporters.
The half-hour long event, titled "Wild Rise," premiered Monday night and categorized the events in Tebow's life through captions that referred to the Bible, including titles like "in the beginning," "cross to bear," "forbidden fruit" and "second coming." The show paid particularly close attention to the fact that Tebow's Christian faith, which he does not separate from his life as a football player, is a major cause for both admiration and disgust among those who have followed his career.

"There was so much that so many people didn't like about him, and so much that other people loved about him, that it made him the most loved and despised figure, not just in sports, but in this country," ESPN's Skip Bayless said.
Tebow was born in the Philippines to American missionaries. His legend almost never began after his mother was advised to terminate her pregnancy due to a life-threatening infection. Both of them survived, and by the time he was 3 years old his family had moved onto a farm in Florida.
