Tebow's mother, Pam, was also part of the sit-down, and she told Roberts that her son -- whom she calls "Timmy" -- didn't get into too much trouble when he was a child.
Tebow and her husband taught their youngest son to be modest about his achievements and to invest in the lives of others. For Tebow, that foundation was invaluable.
Tebow looks forward to a new chapter in his career. In his personal life, he's been linked to several celebrities but said he doesn't worry about rumors and speculation about who he might be dating.
"You deal with it as best you can. And it's funny, because half the rumors, I've never even met the people. And I'm sure they would be lovely," he said.
And as for life after Tebow's football career ends?
"I don't know what my future holds," he said, adding that he would love to play football for as long as he can. "But I do know who holds my future. ... And in that I know that I have peace and comfort."
