Tim Tebow's Heisman Case: A Heart Is Worth a Thousand Yards

Gage ArnoldCorrespondent IDecember 13, 2008

This is my third of three articles on Heisman candidates Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, and Tim Tebow. I will be stating in first person their cases to win the Heisman Trophy, including why they should, what they have done this year, as well as their best accomplishment of this season.

Hey everyone! 

As you know I'm Tim Tebow, and I really want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for this amazing honor. 

It has been a crazy year and to be here now is such a blessing. God has really done so much for me, and to be here now is really all that I need. I am focused solely on this National Championship game, and I plan on laying everything I have on that field, as usual.

I have heard many times that my numbers are nothing like they were last year when I won the Heisman, but that is taking away how my numbers are still good this year, and how truly good SEC defenses are.

At the midpoint of the season, after we just had a heartbreaking loss to Ole Miss, as everyone by now knows I gave a speech to everyone on my team. I stated that I would play harder than anyone in that game and I would give everything I had on every play; no one would play harder. 

Look where we are now. We have completely dominated. I have left everything on the field, and I have thrown only two interceptions against stout SEC defenses all year! Only two interceptions thrown! I left everything out there.

My season moment was of course my speech that truly stated how I felt and got everyone on board with me, but also winning the SEC Championship game really left me in awe, and it showed me that we were almost there.

This award would mean a lot to me, but I know that if it is in God's will then I will get it.

Thank you so much everyone for the consideration.

God Bless! Go Gators!
