Florida Gators to unveil Heisman Trophy statues

The Florida Gators will unveil three statues outside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at halftime of the Orange and Blue spring game on April 9, featuring the school's three Heisman winners: Steve Spurrier (1966), Danny Wuerffel (1996) and Tim Tebow (2007).

The life-sized statues will be installed on the west side of the stadium near the skybox entrance, and the unveiling will be shown on

Florida's scoreboards inside the stadium. All three honorees will participate in the event in some form.

The statues weigh a combined 17,000 pounds and were provided to the university through private donations. They were sculpted by Sandy Proctor.

Florida is one of eight schools in the nation with at least three Heisman trophy winners and one of two with at least three quarterbacks who have won the award.
