Tebow Wins Another Honor
University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was named the 2007-08 Southeastern Conference Male Athlete of the Year, as voted on by the league's athletics directors.
Tebow became the third Gator to receive the honor, joining Danny Wuerffel (1996 and 1997) and Ryan Lochte (2005).Â Â In 2007, Tebow enjoyed a record-breaking year in which he became the first sophomore ever to win the Heisman Trophy, Davey O'Brien Award, the Maxwell Trophy and the Sullivan Award. He also became the first player in college football history to pass and rush for 20-or-more touchdowns in a season. He set the SEC mark for rushing touchdowns with 23, which was also the highest total by any quarterback in NCAA history. The Jacksonville native also set a new standard in single-season touchdown accountability in the SEC, totaling 55 (32 passing, 23 rushing). Tebow was a standout in the classroom as well, earning a spot on the ESPN The Magazine's Academic All-American first-team squad. He became just the fourth sophomore student-athlete in UF history to receive such a distinction. Tebow finished his first full season as a starter by leading the SEC in passing efficiency (172.46), total offense (321.6) and total scoring, averaging 10.6 points per game.
