Tebow Wins Heisman
As expected, the 2007 Heisman Trophy award went to Florida’s Tim Tebow, becoming the first ever sophomore to win college football’s most prestigious award. In doing so, Tebow beat out Arkansas’ Darren McFadden, Missouri’s Chase Daniel, and Hawaii’s Colt Brennan.
McFadden was the runner-up, and is considered the best overall player in college football’s highest division. Tebow won the award with 1957 points and 462 first-place votes, while McFadden finished with 1703 points and 291 first-place votes.
Starting for college football’s defending BCS Champs, Tebow lead the nation with 51 overall touchdowns, 22 rushing and 29 passing. His 22 touchdowns on the ground ties a “Division 1″ record for quarterbacks.
