UF Statue Honor: Spurrier In South Carolina Gear

It was an historic moment today in Gainesville as the University of Florida unveiled statues of its three Heisman Trophy winners, Tim Tebow, Danny Wuerffel and Steve Spurrier, at halftime of the Gators’ spring game.


Thanks to his South Carolina coaching duties, 1966 Heisman winner Spurrier was not able to attend the celebration, but the Ball Coach did thank the Gator Nation with a video message played on the Florida Field scoreboard.

As a respectful alumnus of the University of Georgia, I also took it upon myself to tape a message saluting the Gators’ grand occasion.
