Tim Tebow still a draw following Gator career



Timtebow Whether Tim Tebow will be a successful NFL quarterback remains a hot topic of debate, but one thing's for sure: he's still a huge draw for fans.

Since the announcement that Tebow will play in the 2010 Under Armour Senior Bowl later this month, ticket sales have been on the rise.

According to Senior Bowl officials, more than 1, 200 tickets were sold on Saturday, and another 1,800 on Sunday - the most single-day sales in bowl history. 
 Bowl officials call the sales a direct reflection of Tebow being added to the roster. Senior Bowl CEO Steve Hale said he'd never seen a single player spark so much interest in 16 years.

The Senior Bowl is Jan. 30 at 3 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased at or by calling the ticket office at 251-432-4109 or toll free at 1-888-736-2695.
