Since being cut by the Eagles, Tim Tebow is back with the SEC Network and doing awesome volunteer work. A video posted Tuesday by the Tim Tebow Foundation will melt your heart.
So AWESOME to watch Tim Tebow surprise our new friend Nathaniel at Wolfson Children's Hospital! What an incredible young man!

Tebow won two national championships, a Heisman trophy and the hearts of the Gator Nation during four years of service in Gainesville. When Tebow went to Wolfson Children's Hosptial in Jacksonville, Florida, on Tuesday, his fame was not about himself. It was there Tebow surprised a young Florida fan named Nathaniel.
Nathaniel, draped in his Gators blanket and Gators shirt on his Gators pillow, is overwhelmed with emotion upon Tebow's entrance. Tebow toys with Nathaniel's Gators stuffed animals and tells Nathaniel he has heard so much about the boy.
Nathaniel smiles, laughs and is brought to tears. He musters of the energy to say, "Thank you for visiting me."
The Eagles could use Tebow's help in the red zone with DeMarco Murray injured, but his inspiration to children on hospital beds is making a real impact.
