Prince Amukamara admits he’s a virgin, teammates call him the “black Tim Tebow”

New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara recently got engaged to his long-time girlfriend and during an interview with Muscle and Fitness,  he admitted that he doesn’t drink alcohol and has never slept with his fiance.  In fact he’s a virgin.  His teammates refer to him as the “black Tim Tebow.”

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. As I grew up, I realized that’s not what it’s about. It’s about having a relationship with Jesus. It’s not about “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” But still, it’s just one of those things I haven’t done, and I don’t see any benefit to doing it. You’re always reading about people getting DUIs. So many bad things that happen and wind up in the paper are alcohol-related, so by not drinking, it saves me, my team, and my family a lot of trouble.

You said one of your nicknames is “the black Tim Tebow.”

[Laughs] Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow. Well, Tim Tebow famously said that he was a virgin.

Are you? Are you open to talking about that?

Yeah, I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.

It’s great to hear about an NFL star with morals and self respect.  Good for Prince.
