For just the sixth time in the history of the Florida Gators football program, a man will be inducted into the Ring of Honor that surrounds Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. In this case, it will be the greatest player in program history who takes his spot among a short group of peers as two-time national champion Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow steps into the circle on Saturday afternoon.
Tebow, who will be inducted between the first and second quarter of Saturday’s game against LSU and see his name erected in the north endzone of The Swamp. Tebow will be in town with SEC Network‘s pregame show, “SEC Nation,” but he will not be the only former Florida player taking part in festivities on Saturday. Nearly the entire 2008 national championship team — except Meyer and those still playing and coaching elsewhere — will be in Gainesville, Florida, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the title win.
