Tebow, who now plays for the New York Mets' minor league team the St. Lucie Mets, stopped by a Hurricane Irma special needs shelter in Jacksonville, where he signed autographs and posed for photos with people who had been stranded by the storm.

The hurricane slammed Florida this past weekend, and the University of Florida college football star who is now a St. Lucie Mets outfielder was on hand to help out in his hometown of Jacksonville.

He then greeted evacuees at a shelter with Florida's governor Rick Scott.

This past Monday, Tim Tebow took to his Twitter to post an inspirational message of hope.

Other words of support came from Tebow via Twitter.

Listen to what else Tebow had to say in the video above. "We're praying for you". Still, he reminded people that God has a plan during tough times. I'm just here at one of my neighbors' and friends' house. He has a tree going through his house. "Just know we're praying for you". Tebow may be a middling at best baseball player and an okay television personality but what he does best is get people to rally around him.
