Tim Tebow uses football to reach and touch the people who need it the most. Tim tweeted about a 15 year old football player who lost his life to cancer and how Trey Erwin inspired him.
Trey Erwin, a 15-year-old Tennessee football player, died of pancreatic cancer Thursday.
Erwin’s story touched an entire region that learned about him after he found out he had six months to live. His diagnosis sparked a “Pray for Trey” social media movement, T-shirts, armbands and a song. New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was among those Erwin touched.
In just one phone call @TreyErwin13 truly inspired me. You will be missed by many brother but I look forward to seeing you in heaven one day

Say what you want about Tebow, but using football as a way to touch people’s lives is why Tim is the most popular player in the NFL today.
