Tim Tebow is now three seasons removed from his last NFL regular season snap, so his professional football days may be through; but his political career could still be on the horizon.
At the Tim Tebow Foundation’s annual golf outing Tuesday, the former Florida quarterback was asked by Ainsley Earhardt of Fox & Friends if he would ever consider running for office. While he didn’t announce his intention to run anytime soon, Tebow said the chance to “make a difference someday” was “intriguing.”
Tebow, 28, isn’t old enough to run for President for another seven years, but the age requirement for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is just 25 and he’ll reach the age requirement of 30 for the U.S. Senate soon.
Given Tebow’s tremendous popularity — especially in Florida — even after a few years away from the limelight, and his squeaky clean image, it’s hard to count out the quarterback’s chances at winning a race.
