Watch Tim Tebow Give Pep Talk to Wichita State Basketball Team

Subscribe to on

The world’s most famous backup quarterback has offered up some words of encouragement for the Wichita State basketball team as it prepares for the Sweet 16.

Tim Tebow was on a plane that was refueling in Wichita last Sunday when the Shockers’ bus happened to pull in after the team returned from Salt Lake City, Utah where it defeated Pittsburgh and top-seeded Gonzaga to advance to the Sweet 16.

A rep for the former Heisman Trophy winner asked Shockers head coach Gregg Marshall if Tebow could give a pep talk to the team.

The next thing you know phones are out recording Tebow’s words of wisdom to the team:

This you will remember for the rest of your lives….You will never forget it, guys…. These are the special times of your lives, regardless of what you do in the future. So, I just want to say congrats. You are an inspiration to so many people.”

Imagine how pumped up the team would’ve been if they had gotten a speech from someone who actually plays in games in the sport in which they compete.

The Shockers will face La Salle Thursday night in Los Angeles with a berth in the Elite Eight on the line.
