Tim Tebow of Florida took home the Heisman Saturday night as this years best college football player. The versatile Gators' QB scored 52 touchdowns against the tough SEC defenses. Tebow was also the first sophomore to ever take home the award. He is the third Gators' QB to win the Heisman trophy. Let's get back to his outstanding numbers. He had 22 rushing TDs and was a 6 foot 3 235 pound wrecking ball for the Gators. He is not just a throwing quarterback: He also threw for 29 touchdowns this season. He led his team to a 9-3 record. His competitors in the Heisman race were: Darren McFadden, Arkansas running back; Colt Brennan, Hawaii quarterback; and Chase Daniel, Missouri quarterback.
Tebow also surprised me with his great personality. He thanked god about a thousand times on stage. He also said that he was proud to be a Gator about thousand times also. That leads me to believe that Tim will stay at Florida until his senior year. This is how Tebow set his priorities: 1. God, 2. Family, 3. Academics, and 4. Football. Tebow sounds like a great guy and deserving of the Heisman award.
Tebow and Darren McFadden were thought to be neck and neck in the Heisman race going into Saturday. McFadden lost by less than 200 votes. I feel bad for McFadden (well not that bad: he'll be going to the NFL and be a millionaire in his early 20s) because he came in second last year and came in second again, even though he had a better year.
Well, it's almost bowl time. Their should be some very exciting games in this crazy college football season.
