College football legend and NFL outcast Tim Tebow is about to launch his debut as an analyst for ESPN’s new SEC Network in August. Yet, the former Heisman Trophy winner would rather be launching spirals for an NFL franchise and claims that “I’m training every day and feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been.”
According to Sports Grid, Tebow will analyze his first game on Sept. 6 in Nashville between Vanderbilt and Mississippi. The former University of Florida standout claims the new network will be different. He told the Tennessean, “You have to start out with how the SEC is different. It’s different because of its passion, its tradition and the love for all of the teams; the good ones, the bad ones, it doesn’t matter… It’s fun to be a part of that. I’ve been a part of it my entire life.”
Moreover, according to NFL CFB 24/7, the 26-year-old Tebow is ideally suited for an analyst role. Sports writer Chase Goodbread posits that given that he is arguably the greatest and most popular University of Florida’s players in history, he should excel as an analyst for the SEC Network.
Despite his excitement about working in his new job, Tebow still maintains a lot of enthusiasm for his old job. He talked about the possibility of a return to the NFL, “I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I’m just excited about whatever the future holds. Who knows what could happen? But I’m excited about it, though.”
