Tim Tebow may be pursuing a career in professional baseball, taking a swing this past season with the St. Lucie Mets, but it's his football skills that are gaining him entry into the Florida Sports Hall of Fame.
The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at the University of Florida will be inducted November 8th in Ponte Vedra.
Tebow is one of five distinguished honorees to make up the 2017 class of Hall of Fame inductees.
Joining him will be:
- Florida State running back Warrick Dunn
- Atlanta Braves slugger Chipper Jones
- Former PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem
- The late LPGA Tour star Colleen Walker
After graduating as a Florida Gator, Tebow played three years in the NFL, compiling an 8-6 record as a starter for the Denver Broncos in 2011.
He currently plays professional baseball in the New York Mets organization. He is also an analyst for the SEC Network.
