Tim Tebow recently provided words of wisdom to the youth at Sheridan High School in Sheridan, Wyoming for a K-Life ministry event Wednesday where he opened up about peer pressure.
Tebow, the 27-year-old former Heisman Trophy winner-turned-ESPN football analyst, spoke to the youth in the K-Life ministry, a Christian interdenominational ministry for youth and their families in Sheridan, Wyoming. At the event that took place on April 15, Tebow answered questions about various topics concerning the youth.
One of those topics touched on peer pressure, which Tebow had some unique insight about. According to the Christian athlete, giving in to peer pressure put people at risk of being nothing more than average.
“Do I want to be average or do I want to be special? If everyone is going one way, I’m gonna make a choice to follow that,” Tebow questioned at the event, according to The Sheridan Press. “Why? Because if I’m like everyone else, then I’m average.”
The athlete reflected on being young and choosing to stand out from the crowd.
“For me, when I was young, even if it wasn’t right, I chose to be different because if you’re different you at least have a chance to be special. … It is OK to be different,” Tebow said. “Yeah, you might be criticized every now and then but you’re also going to be respected.”
