Former Florida Gators star Tim Tebow will continue his second act as a professional athlete with the Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies, the New York Mets' Class A affiliate.

He will, of course, wear No. 15.

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, has made a couple trips to Columbia in the past. In 2007, Tebow rushed for 120 yards and five touchdowns and passed for 304 yards and two more scores in a 51-31 victory. Two years later, he rushed for a touchdown and threw for another against the Gamecocks in a 24-14 win.
