I was just looking up "Rocket" to see if there was any "Tebow"ing controversy that I was not aware of back in the day. I see that "Rocket" is no longer a Muslim. He converted to Christianity. I couldn't find a date for his conversion (one source said age 24). I don't know if his "Tebow"ing occurred when he was a Muslim or a Christian.

I'm too busy to search right now.
