Tim Tebow continues to win over more than sports fans with his core values and faith.

While on “The View,” Tebow talked about a moment of prayer with a fan who was experiencing a seizure at a baseball game.

“You stopped to comfort and pray over a fan who had a seizure,” said “View” co-host Sunny Hostin. “Some witnesses called your prayer a 'miracle.' Can you take us back through that moment and what happened?”

And he did:

"That was right after my first game in the Arizona fall league and I was signing autographs and there were a couple hundred people down the line. And I just passed Brandon and then I looked back and I saw him starting to go to the ground and starting to go into a seizure. And then he went unconscious.

So, it was honestly a little bit frustrating. Because when it started to happen, there were so many people, the first thing they wanted to do was grab their phone and put this on Instagram. In a moment of need, when somebody's hurting, let's not try to get more followers, let's try to help somebody.

I didn't want to do it for the cameras. That's why I put my hand on his thigh and just started to pray."

Tebow, who plays for the Port St. Lucie Mets minor league team, spoke for 20 minutes with the Georgia Bulldogs fan. They still keep in touch, Tebow said.

“You know, though,” Hostin said, “Some people are saying that your laying of your hands on him, that was a miracle, the miracle of prayer.”

“I don't think it had anything to do with me,” Tim Tebow replied. “God has a bigger plan for everybody, and God's in control. I'm not in control of anything.”

“The View” audience's positive reaction to the sports star's refreshing humility speaks for itself.
