CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) -- Tim Tebow says he is in a "constant battle" to balance his faith with fame and football.

Every move the popular New York Jets backup quarterback makes is scrutinized, whether it's how he throws or runs off the field -- or jogs shirtless through the rain after practice. Off the field, Tebow is easily recognized by even the most casual of football fans. It all makes things predictably tough, especially when you're just trying to be a normal 25-year-old guy.

Deep down, he knows that he's anything but normal. Tebow says in a recent sit-down with The Associated Press that he leans on his faith constantly, helped by a longtime "accountability partner," even during the dog days of training camp when prayers and playbooks could get muddled in his mind.
