College football and NFL star Tim Tebow says he is open to running for political office in the future, suggesting that it “would be intriguing.”

Appearing on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, Tebow commented on the 2016 election cycle, saying, “It’s been crazy. Hasn’t it? It’s been a whirlwind watching everything.”

At a Tebow Foundation golf event, co-host Ainsley Earhardt said to Tebow, “Have you thought about politics? Because you’d be such a good role model for these kids.”

Tebow replied, “Well, thank you… You know, I don’t know in this time in my life but–”

“So you’re saying there’s a chance,” Earhardt asked.

“If there’s a chance you could make a difference someday with something, then that would be intriguing,” Tebow said.

Tebow is a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who went to the University of Florida, a key state in presidential politics.
