Tebow named to Governor's fitness council

The latest: Governor Charlie Crist has appointed the UF quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner to be  co-chair of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness. Tebow will join council chair Derrick Brooks, former linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and co-chair Shannon Miller, Olympic gold medal gymnast.
Tebow is in some prestigious company: former NHL star Dave Andreychuk, tennis star and Olympian Jennifer Capriati, NFL running back Warrick Dunn, Boston Red Sox third-baseman Mike Lowell, Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O’Neal, world champion surfer Kelly Slater, and Olympic swimmer Dara Torres.
"Tim Tebow’s leadership and servanthood both on and off the field make him an ideal candidate to serve as co-chair of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness," Governor Crist said in a press release.  "Tim is a true role model who consistently demonstrates the fitness and healthy living characteristics the council is responsible for promoting."
