Tim Tebow -- 2008 Heisman Trophy?
by Paul Lyboult
Darren McFadden, Colt Brennan, and Chase Daniel.
All three of these players were Heisman finalists & potential NFL stars of the future. What else do they have in common?
They finished behind Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow, who went on to win the 2007 Heisman Trophy.
Tebow came on strong in 2007 throwing for 32 touchdowns and rushing for 23 more as he became the first sophomore to win the award. He has the
running skills of a Mike Vick and the passing skills similar to 2005 NFL top draft choice Alex Smith (also another former Meyer-tutored quarterback).
As 2008 approaches the anticipation for a Tebow repeat Heisman Trophy continues to grow. He could go down as one of college football's greatest players of all time if this type of play continues.
With two years left to go assuming he doesn't leave college early, Tebow still has time to
master the Florida Offense & conquer the SEC.
There is no question in my mind that this past season is not necessarily the best Tebow has to
Not since Maurice Clarett finished his incredible freshman season at Ohio State have I seen a player receive so much hype.
While his NFL future is somewhat murky at this point (I see him nothing more than a 3rd round developmental selection), his college future is
already set. Florida will return in 2008 much like it left 2007.
The Gators will be guided by the arms and legs of Tim Tebow, who just might be the great college quarterback that all those who follow are compared to.
