Add ice hockey to Tim Tebow’s repertoire.
Along with Jaguar linebacker Myles Jack and former Jacksonville star Reggie Hayward, the former Broncos quarterback and now-Mets outfield prospect became part-owner of the Jacksonville Icemen, an ECHL affiliate for the Winnipeg Jets, on Tuesday.
“I just love Jacksonville,” Tebow said in a statement. “I am excited to be a part of this new endeavor with the Icemen. I think it’s important to invest back in the community that has meant so much to me. I look forward to incorporating and expanding the Icemen’s involvement with our Tim Tebow Foundation and other community initiatives. “
Other owners include Rockies first baseman Daniel Murphy, who grew up in Jacksonville and attended Jacksonville University.
