Tim Tebow
Tim Tebow is the Heisman Trophy winning former quarterback of the University of Florida Gators. Tebow was drafted 25th overall in the first round by the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. One of the best college football players of all time, the left-handed Tebow possessed a great mix of size, strength, speed, leadership and throwing ability.

Tim Tebow is the Heisman Trophy winning former quarterback of the University of Florida Gators. Tebow was drafted 25th overall in the first round by the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. One of the best college football players of all time, the left-handed Tebow possessed a great mix of size, strength, speed, leadership and throwing ability.

A superb talent at Nease High in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., Tebow was followed through his senior season by a film crew, which produced the "Chosen One". The one-hour documentary looked at Tebow's football career, work ethic and family life, which has included several trips to Southeast Asia as a missionary.

As a freshman at Florida, Tebow served as the backup to starting quarterback Chris Leak and played a key role in the team's national championship season. As a sophomore, Tebow broke NCAA records while scoring 55 touchdowns and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. He led the Gators to another national championship in his junior year and finished third in the Heisman race despite receiving the most first place votes. His senior year fell short of a national championship as the Gators lost to eventual BCS champion Alabama in the SEC Championship game. Tebow did end his college career a winner setting BCS bowl game records in the Sugar Bowl against an overmatched Cincinnati.
