GQ's September issue marks the start of football season and features dual covers for everyone's favorite chaste player, Tim Tebow, and Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton.

Tim, who just happens to be turning 25 today, was last season's big star for the Denver Broncos, but starting this Fall he's a proud New York Jet.

That being said, he gets that some Big Apple fans may not immediately take to him.

No worries, he muses, after a knock-out season they'll change their mind.

“I think if they’re a Jets fan, hopefully they’ll be rooting for me. I’ll do whatever I can to help this team win football games," he said. "I’ll give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when I’m on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, that’s really all you can ask of someone.”

While the writer for GQ isn't sold on Tim at the beginning of the interview, after seeing him swarmed by fans and reporters, he marvels at the athlete's "charisma."

"Tebow smiles the entire time he is surrounded by reporters, no matter what he's asked…he is clearly enjoying himself," he writes. "He likes the attention, and not in a craven, needy way. More like: I'm a people person!"

Are you a Tim Tebow fan?
