His faith and foundation are just as high of priorities, too. Tebow’s foundation is teaming up with CURE International to build a children’s hospital in the Philippines, where Tebow was born. He also inspires inmates through jailhouse talks.

As for what he wanted for the holidays, Tebow didn’t hesitate.

“To use my platform for good,” he said, “and to beat the Bills.”
