Former Gator quarterback and current Jets backup Tim Tebow made Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, who is also on the list, wrote the blurb on Tebow.

Lin remarks on Tebow’s competitiveness, work ethic and leadership abilities.

Bubba Watson and Tim Tebow, right, share a laugh on the driving range during the Tim Tebow Foundation Charity Golf Classic.

But it’s Tebow’s “qualities in life off the field” that really stand out, Lin said. “He is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and he lives a life that consistently reflects his values, day in and day out. … As athletes, we pour our hearts into winning games. Tim is a reminder that life is about much more than that.”
