1987: NFL quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is born in Makati City, Philippines, to American parents who were serving as Baptist missionaries at the time.

COURTLAND, N.Y. - The New York Jets have extensively practiced their wildcat package with Tim Tebow for the first time in front of the media during training camp.

The Jets provided a small glimpse into their plan for Tebow and their wildcat-style formation on Aug. 2 during goal-line drills, but had not worked specifically on the scheme until Monday.

The practice is closed to the public, so the media is restricted from reporting specifics about how the Jets are using the wildcat and with what personnel. But, as coach Rex Ryan has insisted, the wildcat appears it will be at least a small part of Tony Sparano's offense with Tebow in the mix.

Sparano helped make the scheme popular again a few years ago when he was the coach of the Miami Dolphins.
