8. Tim Tebow
The New York Mets’ Tebow had a scintillating college career with the Florida Gators. First of all, he was the first quarterback to run for 20 touchdowns and throw for 20 in a breathtaking Heisman year. He set all kinds of records on his way to individual glory in 2007.
This outstanding young quarterback also brought home the Davey O’Brien Award as the accolades kept coming. It wasn’t just one year of brilliance either. Tebow helped his team beat the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2008 championship game. A phenomenal talent.
