Tim Tebow to join Florida Gators’ ring of honor

Florida Gators legend Tim Tebow will become the latest player inducted into UF's ring of honor, the team announced Wednesday.

Tebow will be honored on Oct. 6, when UF hosts LSU and when the Gators honor their 2008 national title team at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, will join previous honorees Wilber Marshall, Emmitt Smith, Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Jack Youngblood.

"I am so humbled and thankful to be able to receive this blessing, being inducted into the Ring of Honor," Tebow said in a statement. "I know in my heart that I truly couldn't have done it without amazing coaches and teammates who loved and sacrificed for each other so that we could accomplish our goals.

"Loving Florida wasn't just something I did for four years, but it has been a lifelong passion. I want to thank the University of Florida and all the fans for making Gator Nation so special. I was born a Gator, I played as a Gator, and I'll always be a Gator!"
