Tim Tebow will be the featured speaker at Liberty University's convocation on Friday.
As expected, students are excited to hear the football star speak. But some don't want him to speak.
A petition is circulating that aims to keep Tebow away from LU.
It's sponsored by a group called Faithful America.
It was started just this week, and so far, it's gotten almost 11,000 signatures.
The group describes themselves as a quote "an online community... motivated by faith to take action on the pressing moral issues of our time."
The petition titled, "Tim Tebow Don't Speak at Liberty University," says the university is quote "ground zero for a global assault on the legal rights of gays and lesbians."
It goes on to encourage Tebow to cancel his plans at LU, saying quote "associating with anti-gay hatred is no way to share the good news of Jesus Christ."
Tebow recently canceled a speaking engagement at a church in Texas, after learning more about controversial statements made by the pastor there.
