Tim Tebow has always been known for doing extraordinary things on and off of the sports field and going beyond the call of duty whenever needed.

After a 0-for-3 performance in his Arizona Fall League debut on Tuesday earlier this week, the former NFL quarterback went to sign some autographs for some fans when something bad happened.

A fan began to have a seizure, so Tebow decided to step in and help.

Kari Van Horn, an Arizona beat reporter for ABC15 tweeted: "Tebow signing autographs. Fan has what looks like seizure. Not moving. Tebow puts hand on him and says a prayer. Man breathes. WOW."

Despite the team bus waiting for him, the former Denver Broncos star then stayed with the fan and comforted him for 15 minutes until the paramedics arrived at the scene at Camelback Ranch stadium according to USA Today.

As you can see in the video below, the fan was in good hands with Tebow.

After remembering his name was Brandon and saying the seizure likely resulted from a brain tumor of frontal lobe epilepsy, him and Tebow talked about college football and recruiting. They exchanged banter with one another, and it even led to a funny moment when the fan revealed he was a University of Georgia fan, the archrival of Tebow's college, the University of Florida.

Tebow said: “You’re a Bulldog? You’re kidding me. Don’t even know how to respond to that.’’

Hopefully, the fan is ok now and makes a full recovery. Tim Tebow, what a guy.
