Clearly, this New York Jets quarterback isn't the first jock to make the jump from athlete to full-fledged pop icon (hi, Lamar Odom!), but what was it about Tim Tebow that got him to where he is today?

Was it all the romance rumors? His reality TV offers? The shocking V-card reveal?

Luckily, E! will answer all those burning questions with the special Tim Tebow's Wild Rise. The 30-minute profile, airing July 2, focuses on the athlete's success both on and off the field— from his devout Christian faith to the controversy that surrounds him—by speaking to his close friends, former high school and college football coaches, sports journalists and pop culture experts.

Watch the clip to get a sneak peek of how "Tebow Mania" began and make sure to catch the entire 30-minute special Tim Tebow's Wild Rise, July 2 at 8 p.m., only on E!
