The American football player, Tim Tebow, won a Heisman Trophy in 2007 commemorating his exceptional performance.

Tim Tebow’s Exciting Career

Tebow started by playing college football at Florida where he made history by becoming the very first sophomore to win a Heisman trophy. He helped his team achieve victory in the BCS National Championship not once but twice in 2007 and 2009. As a free agent, Tebow played three seasons in the NFL as a quarterback for the New York Jets and Denver Broncos. The Heisman award he won back in 2007 has been adorning shelves of different individuals for the past eight years.

Auctioning Off the Trophy

In an interview, Tebow was asked about his Heisman award and where he keeps it. That’s when the NFL star revealed that, for the past eight years, he’s been auctioning it off to different people on a temporary basis. The proceeds of every auction have been used for charity. The winner of the auction would keep it in their home for six months up to a year. Apparently, many famous people tend to bid on it.
