Tim Tebow wins second ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American of theYear



Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has won the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America of the Year award, becoming the first student-athlete to earn the honor two consecutive years in the University Division.

Tebow is the first Florida athlete in any sport to earn first-team Academic All-America honors three-consecutive years and the first football player from the SEC to be chosen to the first team three-straight times. He joins Carlos Alvarez as the only three-time Academic All-Americans in football at Florida. Alvarez earned first-team recognition in 1969 and second-team accolades in 1970 and 1971.

Tebow is majoring in Family, Youth and Community Sciences and has a 3.66 grade point average.
