    Happy Birthday, Tim Tebow!

    The 26-year-old received a lot of birthday wishes and responded by thanking everyone via his Twitter account.

    However, the well-known Christian athlete also used his special day as an opportunity to pay tribute to someone who considers a true inspiration.

    "Thanks for the bday love!" he tweeted, adding, "Check out this video about someone who really inspired me this past year. Love ya Dylan!"

    Every year, the Tim Tebow Foundation fulfills the dreams of more than 20 children who are battling life-threatening illnesses through its W15H Wednesday program.

    This video highlights the story of Dylan, a 23-year-old with cerebral palsy who prayed about meeting the NFL quarterback. And his prayers were granted.

    Dylan was able to attend a New York Jets game where he got to meet the athlete and was given the game ball.

    "Tim and the W15H changed my life," Dylan said of the program.

    Since then, Tebow has been released from the Jets but kept the faith with his optimistic reaction.

    He signed with the New England Patriots last June, joining fellow NFL stud Tom Brady. Battle of the quarterback hotties on the field?
