Tim Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner from Florida who was also a three-time Heisman finalist, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday (Dec. 5) in Las Vegas as part of the Class of 2023.
Tebow was among 18 All-American first teamers and four coaches inducted into the latest College Football Hall of Fame Class, hosted by the National Football Foundation.
Tebow is the 68th Heisman Trophy winner to be elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.
It is the fourth year in a row with a Heisman winner in a class, following Colorado’s Rashaan Salaam’s inclusion in the Class of 2022, USC’s Carson Palmer in the Class of 2021 and Nebraska’s Eric Crouch’s membership in the 2020 class.
“It means a lot not just for the accolade—which it’s humbling to be in the hall of fame, but it also represents the incredible young men that I got to play with because the special thing about football is that it’s never just about you,” said Tebow. “It is about the band of brothers that you get to play with, train with, work with, sweat with, create a vision and a goal and strive for that. I wouldn’t be here without their talent, their hard posture, their skillset, and also the relationships, the camaraderie and the brotherhood. It means a lot to me for that and it also means a lot to me for the coaches that I got to play for.”
