Those of you not following the daily dispatches from New York Jets training camp on ESPN may have missed the big news for Tuesday.

Tim Tebow is now 25 years old.

Born on August 14, 1987, the former Heisman Trophy winner became perhaps the most talked about athlete in sports last season. After taking over the starting quarterback role for the Denver Broncos, the then 24-year-old was part of the team's miraculous run all the way to the second round of the playoffs. With the Broncos' defense keeping games close, Tebow helped orchestrate dramatic wins while putting up bizarre (and sometimes outright bad) numbers (like a 2-for-8 performance in a win over Kansas City).

After the postseason concluded, Tebow became the most polarizing backup quarterback in the NFL upon his trade to the New York Jets.

While Tebow celebrated his 25th birthday practicing the wildcat offense at training camp, his devoted fans may have been looking at shirtless photos of him in the September issue of GQ Magazine. ESPN, of course, threw its own Tebow birthday party during SportsCenter, but oddly enough Skip Bayless was not in attendance.

Whether or not you're a fan, there's no denying that Tebow has produced plenty of memorable football highlights over his quarter century -- to go along with plenty of poorly thrown passes.

Here are some of the best Tebow highlights of his career.
