Tim Tebow said in an interview about Heisman favorite Baker Mayfield’s crotch grab over the weekend that as a high-profile player, “you can’t dip down to their level.”
Tebow went on to say that during his college football career, he had the “most horrific things” said to him—about his sister and mother, and about where he should “shove his Bible.”
Check it out (via Breitbart):
In my time of playing high school, college and pro I had people say the most horrific things to me: say exactly what they are going to do to my sisters and mom, they’re telling me where to shove my Bible, they’re spitting in my face, they’re giving cheap shots, all these different things to me, and so I know what it’s like to have people take cheap shots and say things to you, but you also got to know at that moment that you’re winning, that you’re under their skin, so you can’t dip down to their level because you are already dominating them. They’re saying that because they’re already intimidated, they’re disappointed, they’re upset because they want something that you have.
