Tim Tebow a ‘Great Floridian’: Former Florida Gator quarterback to be honored with prestigious award

•By: News Service of Florida

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — His professional football career remains up in the air, but Tim Tebow will be named a “Great Floridian” this week by Gov. Rick Scott.

The former Florida Gator quarterback will be honored, one of only 66 people since 1981 to get the award, on Friday.

Two “great Floridians” are chosen each year by the secretary of state from a list of nominees.

Scott will present Tebow with the award at an event at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.

Tebow was a backup quarterback this past year for the New York Jets, and they’re looking for a taker on a trade deal.

    Maybe Tebow should focus on improving his skills and training instead of getting all these awards. You don’t see Sanchez losing practice time by getting any awards.

      does not ask for any of those awards all does is to a law bidding citzen of the usa.he has also beworking with quite few quarterback gurus to improve his self as aquarterback so if he ever gets a chance to show his stuff on the field but some one has to give him achance since rex ryan has notgiven him a chance the jets need to go ahead and cut him so he can get another chance.the kets don deserve to get anything for tim they did not give him alonge time to prove his self they just used the buttfumbler all the time rex deserves be fired for that ,also he and mark must have something going on together rex is sweet on mark sanchez the tattoo proves that him and mark are a secret item.
