Florida Gators : Can Trey Burton Become A Household Name, Like Tim Tebow?

Sure it's early, but Trey Burton has exemplified some dominant skills that will start to be compared to the Gator greatTim Tebow.  

It's plain and simple : Burton finished Saturday's game in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with a total of six touchdowns against the Kentucky Wildcats.  With this performance Burton broke Tim Tebow's five touchdown recordby playing the way the beloved Heisman winner did his Freshman year.

At 6'2'' 222 pounds, the true Freshman Trey Burton is even a similar build to Tim Tebow who stands at 6'3" and 245 pounds.  He was recruited as a QB, but will also play receiver.

After the game against Kentucky, Urban Meyer told reporters that "Trey Burton was fantastic.  There were a lot of great players that played in this stadium and he broke some records.  He's the kind of guy you just feel comfortable with because he picks it all up."

Burton was so dominant in "The Swamp" this Saturday, that he scored every time he rushed the football, with five carries for 40 yards scoring five rushing touchdowns.  

He also recorded five receptions for 37 yards and another touchdown.  Burton really proved to everybody how versatile he can be, even completing a pass for 42 yards in his only pass attempt of the game.

Be sure to lookout for Trey Burton in the futurebecause you never know what records he can potentially break.
