Tim Tebow drew a crowd of more than 26,000 people over the weekend, not for football but for a Father's Day event meant to honor dads.
Speaking at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium Sunday, Tebow encouraged fathers to set an example in their homes and inspire their families.
Tebow spoke about his own father and the example he set in his home.
"For me it was about watching my dad. He could say whatever he wanted, but I watched him," Tebow said. "How he acted, how he was, how he treated my mom, how he treated my four siblings."
"And that's how I learned the most from my dad," Tebow continued. "Because it wasn't about what he said, it was about what he did in front of me and my siblings my whole life."
Tebow also talked about how his father used the life of jesus to teach him about love, passion and sacrifice.
El Cajon's Shadow Mountain Community Church hosted the free event.
The theme was "Father's Day 2012: Encouraging Men to Live, Love and Lead."
