Catholic and celibate:
…Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is now being compared to Tebow, who was released by the Patriots on Aug. 31.
The comparison doesn’t have to do with their play on the field, but rather their actions off the field.
Big Blue’s first-round draft pick in 2011 told Muscle and Fitness that he never drinks alcohol, and is committed to staying celibate.
With that has come a nickname.
“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow,” the 24-year-old told the magazine. “I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.”
“I still haven’t had a drink,” the Nebraska alum said. “I told my fiance that I’ll probably take my first drink at my bachelor party. I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things. I’d think, ‘If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven,’ so I said no drinks, no sex, all the big things.”
