Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow received a lot of press this season.
Some of the attention has been good while some has been bad. Most of it focused on his playing ability, but some focused on what he does after scoring a touchdown.
After every touchdown Tebow scores, he kneels and gives thanks to God, which is now called, "Tebowing."
And as far as E.E. "Buzz" Burgess is concerned, Tebow should continue "Tebowing."
Burgess recently told The Brazil Times of an encounter his family had with Tebow just a few years ago.
Burgess' grandson, Brandon Greewalt, was heading to the Florida School of Dentistry after graduating from Ball State University.
Burgess and his late wife, along with Brandon's parents, Pennie and Jerry Brown, drove Brandon to Florida to begin classes.
"What happened was, his grandma and I helped them move all his suitcases, which was about seven or eight," Burgess said. "It was his first time down there.
"We all took him down there. We took a caravan down to Florida. And when we got there, we had all these suitcases."
Burgess said as they arrived, they noticed a huge bus near them. It was the Florida Gators' football bus.
He said two players got off the bus and immediately offered to help with the luggage.
"They jumped off the bus and came over and said, "Hey, can we help you?' Burgess said. "I noticed my son-in-law was almost aghast, but I said, 'Sure fellas.'"
The two players offered to help carry the luggage to Brandon's room.
While Burgess was aware of who Tebow was, he didn't recognize him.
However, his grandson and son-in-law pointed it out almost immediately.
Burgess shook Tebow's hand after the encounter and said he was in "awe."
"I couldn't believe that there were still people like that left," Burgess said. "He just went out of his way to help a couple of people in need. This was a boy from a football team bus. It was a great experience."
Despite the media attention surrounding Tebow for various reasons, Burgess said he is impressed with him.
"He's actually everything he professes to be," Burgess said. "He's not afraid to show his faith, and I think that is super. If you do it openly, that's a no-no in our society. Tebow is not afraid to do that.
"I have seen his success. He's such a good example for our young people. He's just a great young man, and he's real. He's a real young man who is a Christian. He takes that faith to the field, and I think that's great. I applaud that."
Incidentally, Burgess' grandson will graduate with honors this year.
