Alfred D. Hughes maximum-security prison holds over 2,000 inmates and Tebow met with a group of them there where he shared the Gospel and even took part in a pushups contest that he lost. TMZ reported that he was defeated 84-71 in the pushup competition.

“Excited to see how they will use their lives for the Kingdom as they grow closer to God and encourage others to live in faith,” he shared.

The Florida Gators Heisman Trophy winner thanked the warden and the entire staff for opening their doors to him.

In a separate Instagram post, Tebow shared a photo of himself and some of the inmate pointing up to God.

“Beyond blessed to spend time encouraging new brothers in Christ and that through Jesus they can have hope for a better tomorrow, and an eternity in heaven!” he wrote.
