Tim Tebow believes in the power of prayer for everything from scoring touchdowns to healing the sick.

On Tuesday, the former college football star, who is now trying his hand at baseball, came to the aid of an ailing fan who suffered a seizure and collapsed on the concrete while Tebow was signing autographs after his debut in the Arizona Fall League, Fox News reported.

“They are going to take good care of you, buddy,” the Heisman Trophy winner told the man, as he waited for paramedics for 15 minutes by the man’s side.

The man collapsed after a game between the Scottsdale Scorpions and the Glendale Desert Dogs in Phoenix.

After identifying himself as Brandon and revealing that the seizure likely resulted from a brain tumor of frontal lobe epilepsy, the man confessed that he was a fan of the University of Georgia Bulldogs — a rival of Tebow’s University of Florida Gators — which almost deterred even the biggest Good Samaritan in sports.

“You’re a Bulldog? You’re kidding me,” Tebow exclaimed, according to USAToday.com. “I don’t even know how to respond to that.”

Nonetheless, Tebow told Brandon, “
God bless you, buddy,” as he squeezed his hand when the ambulance arrived.

As for his performance during the game, Tebow went 0-for-3 at the plate for the Mets minor league team.
