Tim Tebow, Danny Wuerffel, Steve Spurrier Get Bronze Statues at Florida
Florida’s three Heisman Trophy winners were memorialized with bronze statues that were unveiled Saturday during the Gators’ spring game at The Swamp. The program’s three winners, Tim Tebow (2007), Danny Wuerffel (1996), and Steve Spurrier (1966) were all honored with life-sized statues that are on display outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville. Both Spurrier and Wuerffel’s statues show them throwing, while the statue of quarterback Tim Tebow shows him tucking his shoulder and running. He wasn’t bothered by the difference, saying they had to change it up for him.
Both Wuerffel and Tebow were in attendance for the ceremony which took place at halftime of the spring game, while Spurrier taped a message that was played for the fans.
