The Tim Tebow, Herschel Walker Business Partnership That You Didn’t See Coming Is Here

Typical you wouldn’t find a Florida Gator openly joining a Georgia Bulldog in a business partnership for reasons that would only make sense if you lived in the South (and actually watch college football). But two of the most visible sports figures associated with each school has done just that. And they’ve even taken the obligatory shirtless photo to make it official.

Tim Tebow and Herschel Walker are now business partners in a sports training facility in Savannah, GA. And now Gator and Bulldog fans have one more thing to argue over. Like was it Tebow or Walker who was responsible for last quarter’s uptick in earnings.

Trust me, it will happen.

D1 Sports announced Tuesday that Gator great Tim Tebow has joined Bulldog legend Herschel Walker as a co-owner in the company’s sports training and therapy center located in southwest Chatham County.

“I’m sure there are some Georgia fans out there who won’t be happy about it,” D1 Sports spokesman Matt Toy said.

You have no idea, Matt.

Walker was a natural partner for the Savannah location. He has family in town and his Renaissance Man Food Services business is headquartered here. His hometown, Wrightsville, is located nearby.

Tebow’s connection locally is more subtle. He grew up in Jacksonville, and Savannah boasts the closest D1 location to his hometown.

Tebow had been looking for an opportunity to join the company since training at D1’s Nashville facility in preparation for the 2010 NFL Combine and NFL Draft.

“I fell in love with the training, atmosphere and the quality of the staff,” Tebow said in a news release. “I chose to be a co-owner of D1 because I believe it is the top training company in the country, and I want to help and watch D1 directly impact the lives of other athletes for years to come just like it continues to positively impact mine.”

Tebow and Walker will visit Savannah next month to meet and work out with members of the local training facility. They won’t work out together — Tebow’s event is May 12 followed by Walker’s two days later — but Bulldog and Gator fans shouldn’t read anything into the separate appearances, Toy said.

“They wanted to do it together, but their schedules wouldn’t allow it,” he said. “It’s not a case where the Georgia Heisman winner refuses to work out with the Florida Heisman winner.”

Mhmmm. Tell us anything.
