Tim Tebow Helps Ailing Fan Suffering From a Seizure

Tim Tebow believes in the power of prayer for everything from scoring touchdowns to healing the sick.

The former college football star, who is now trying his hand at baseball, came to the aid of an ailing fan on Tuesday who suffered a seizure and collapsed on the concrete while Tebow was signing autographs after his debut in the Arizona Fall League, Fox News reported.

“They are going to take good care of you, buddy,” the Heisman Trophy winner told the man, as he waited for 15 minutes by his side for the paramedics.

The man collapsed after the match up on the mound between the Scottsdale Scorpions and the Glendale Desert Dogs in Phoenix, Arizona.

After identifying himself as Brandon and revealing that the seizure likely resulted from a brain tumor of frontal lobe epilepsy, the man confessed that he was a University of Georgia fan, which almost even deterred the biggest Good Samaritan in sports.

“You’re a Bulldog? You’re kidding me,” the former University of Florida QB exclaimed, according to USAToday.com. “I don’t even know how to respond to that.”
