Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein has often been compared to former Florida QB Tim Tebow for his mastery of the spread offense and ability to bowl over defenders.
But Klein is even more similar to the ultra-religious Tebow off the field. Like Tebow, Klein is devoutly Christian and was home schooled by his parents. And whereas Tebow is a 25-year-old, self-admitted virgin, Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com reports that Klein didn’t have his first kiss until three months ago. That’s when, on July 21, Klein married former K-State volleyball player Shalin Spani.
Klein reportedly made a promise to himself at the age of 14 not to kiss anyone until he was at the altar getting married. Talk about discipline.
If Klein continues the way he’s played all season (2,264 total yards, 12 passing TDs, 16 rushing TDs) for No. 2 K-State, the Heisman Trophy frontrunner might soon be putting his lips on the crystal ball BCS trophy.
