KVUE — Famous football player Tim Tebow will tackle the role of chief mission officer for Austin-based snack bar company NuSkool Snacks, according to a press release from the company.

Joe Christensen, NuSkool Snacks CEO and former personal trainer, founded the keto-friendly company in response to increased levels of diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Each of NuSkool's plant-based Krunch Bars contain 7 grams of fiber, 10 grams of protein, and no added sugar. The company also sells collagen dessert bars.

"Tim's athletic excellence and unwavering commitment and advocacy for a low-sugar lifestyle aligns perfectly with our low-sugar mission, and we are honored to have him join our fast-growing team as an investor and chief mission officer," Christensen said. "With his support, our delicious, protein-packed, on-the-go snacks will become increasingly more available to health-conscious consumers."

Tebow, who also holds equity in the company, is a two-time national champion and Heisman Trophy winner. He most recently played as a tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the team gave him an early release from his contract last August. Tebow also played professional baseball and earned the title of New York Times best-selling author at least three times.
