While Tim Tebow searches for a new NFL home, there is a new "Tebow" playing for the New York Giants.

“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow. I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that,” Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara recently told Muscle and Fitness.

Like Tebow, Amukamara is a Christian, but he doesn't use religious gestures on the field.

While Amukamara is a virgin, he's not likely to stay one for life. He met his fiancee while dancing at a club in the Meatpacking District in New York City.

“Corey Webster and Aaron Ross made me go back. They were like, ‘Go say something to her!’ And they were cheering me on. She thought we were all rowdy and drunk and she didn’t pay us any attention. Then, later, I was waiting for Ahmad [Bradshaw] and she came by and we struck up a conversation," recalled Amukamara.

The 24-year-old player also confirmed that he has never drank alcohol.

"It is still true. I still haven’t had a drink. I told my fiancee that I’ll probably take my first drink at my bachelor party. I don’t know if I will, but…," Amukamara trails off.

As far as his unusual first name, Amukamara explained: "My dad is a chief in a village in Nigeria and since I’m the first son, I get the title as prince. I think if I wanted to become a chief there, I would have to live there, so it would be whenever I’m ready."
