Gators unveil statues of Spurrier, Wuerffel, Tebow

- Associated Press - Saturday, April 9, 2011

GAINESVILLE, FLA. (AP) - Florida has honored the school's three Heisman Trophy winners with life-sized statues outside the stadium.

The Gators unveiled bronze statues of Steve Spurrier (1966), Danny Wuerffel (1996) and Tim Tebow (2007) during halftime of Saturday's spring game.

The statues depict Spurrier passing, Wuerffel poised to throw and Tebow running with the ball.

Tebow says that's fine with him. He says "you have to change it up. We can't all be throwing."

Spurrier thanked his alma mater in a videotaped message shown on the replay boards; he was in Columbia, S.C. for the Gamecocks' spring game. Wuerffel and Tebow were on hand for the presentation. It was Tebow's first public appearance at Florida Field since his Pro Day in March 2010.
