Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow didn’t win any of the awards at the ESPNU College Football Awards in Lake Buena Vista, Florida Thursday night, but he still managed to garner some positive publicity with his date selection.
20-year-old Kelly Faughnan of Clifton, Virginia was diagnosed with a brain tumor just prior to Thanksgiving 2008 and underwent surgery in December. The huge Florida Gators fan was at Disney World this week and was hoping she would catch a glimpse of Tebow, who she knew would be in attendance at the awards show. According to NBC Sports, the couple met Wednesday and Tim Tebow made the decision to bring her to the College Football Awards as his date.
“I was really touched,” Tebow told NBC.
OK, that was pretty cool. Here are some more not-so-great pictures of the “couple:”
