Tebow a Heisman Finalist...Again!
Tim Tebow added another Heisman first to his long list of accomplishments just by being selected a finalist for this year's trophy.
Tebow became the first player to be invited to the Heisman Trophy presentation ceremony three times when the Florida quarterback - along with Colt McCoy, Mark Ingram, Toby Gerhart and Ndamukong Suh - was named a finalist Monday for college football's most prestigious player of the year award. The Heisman Trophy will be awarded Saturday in Manhattan. The
presentation ceremony has been televised since 1981 and since 1982
at least three players have been invited to attend.
The last time as many as five players were invited to New York was 2004, when USC quarterback Matt Leinart won the award. Tebow, who was the first sophomore to win the Heisman in 2007, is trying to become the second two-time Heisman winner, joining Ohio State's Archie Griffin. Tebow finished third in the voting last year, while getting the most first-place votes. He's also the first player to finish in the top five of the Heisman voting three times since Georgia tailback Herschel Walker did it in the early 1980s.
