UCLA second-year freshman walk-on tight end Luke Gane is about to get his wish.
On Wednesday, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Gane will fly to Denver to meet Bronco quarterback Tim Tebow, a wish he had three years ago when he missed his junior season at Edison High while battling aplastic anemia.
When reached earlier today, Gane said the Foundation called his house on Monday to let his family know Luke’s wish had been granted.
Why Tebow? “I look up to him as a player and as a Christian,” said Gane. “I admire his drive and he is a great example for Christian athletes. I like the fact that he puts God before everything in his life. I am excited to meet him.”
