Tim Tebow led the Florida Gators to the college football national championship Thursday night, beating Oklahoma, 24-14. Sam Bradford of Oklahoma won this season’s Heisman Trophy Award, but Bradford couldn’t lead his team to the national title.
Here’s how the Heisman Trophy Award voting went this season:
1) Sam Bradford of the University of Oklahoma polled 1,726 points to capture the award.
2) Colt McCoy of Texas polled 1,604 points.
3) The 2007 Heisman winner, Tim Tebow of Florida received 1,575 points.
It seems the Heisman voters only looked at Oklahoma’s explosive offensive numbers instead of also factoring in guts, courage, heart, toughness, leadership, and ability to inspire. In all of those categories, Tim Tebow wins handily.
As I write this, the conventional wisdom is that Tebow will return to play in his senior year at Florida. Then he will go pro and I believe he will be the next Brett Favre.
He is bigger and probably stronger than a young Brett Favre that could mean great longevity for Tebow.
He has all the charm and personality that makes him extremely likable. Football fans all across the country will love him.
He has class and a wonderful, inspirational story that will follow him every day of his life. I firmly believe it is impossible not to see him, hear him, or learn about him and not like him.
Again, thank you Mrs.Tebow for choosing not to abort your baby who turned out to be an incredible role model.
