Sporting News Names Tebow Second Greatest CFB Player Of All Time


Sporting News has compiled a list of the top ten college football players of all time, and former Florida Gators QB Tim Tebow made the list at number two:

"Winner. Leader. Champion. Tebow checked every box for the Gators through part of a dominant career in which he totaled 12,232 yards of offense and 145 total touchdowns. He was a winner: His 35-6 record as a starter under Urban Meyer helped him become the best player in the best conference at the height of its power during the Bowl Championship Series era. He was a leader: "The Speech" after Florida's loss to Ole Miss spurred a national championship run, and will forever be remembered by Florida fans. He was a champion: Tebow was a role player on the 2006 national championship team and the starter for the 2008 national champions. He was the first sophomore ever to win the Heisman Trophy in between in 2007, and he left the college game with a legacy as one of the all-time greats." - Bill Bender, Sporting News

Tebow won two national championships during his time at Florida, and was the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner.
