Tim Tebow, former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback, is paying Sioux Falls a visit Monday as the guest of honor at the South Dakota Fellowship of Christian Athletes “Night of Champions” event at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

Tebow, 27, was a dual-threat workhorse as quarterback for Florida. He led the Gators to national championships in 2007 and ’09, winning the Heisman Trophy in ’07.

The former first-round pick of the Denver Broncos (2010) is also well-known for his work in charities — particularly faith-based initiatives.

“Tim’s not a traditional preacher, but he has a unique message and his committed to sharing it,” said Brian Hansen, the Ministry Director at FCA and a former 15-year punter in the NFL. “I don’t know if we could find a better representative for FCA in our ministry than him.”

Preceding the “Night of Champions” is a free event next door at the Arena. The “All Sports Zone” runs from 5:30-7 p.m. and is open to the public. Kids are encouraged to participate in varying activities, including a 3-point shooting contest, putting, soccer and football.

Tickets for the FCA’s “Night of the Champions” — which begins at 7 p.m. — are available at Tickemaster.com or at the Denny Sanford Premier Center box office. Prices range from $20-50.
