Former quarterback Tim Tebow will be inducted into Florida's Ring of Honor, the school announced Wednesday.

The two-time national champion and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner will be recognized during the Gators' game against LSU on Oct. 6. Tebow's name will be unveiled and displayed in the north end zone of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

[post_ads]"I am so humbled and thankful to be able to receive this blessing, being inducted into the Ring of Honor," the 30-year-old Tebow said in a statement. "I know in my heart that I truly couldn't have done it without amazing coaches and teammates who loved and sacrificed for each other so that we could accomplish our goals.

"Loving Florida wasn't just something I did for four years, but it has been a lifelong passion. I want to thank the University of Florida and all the fans for making Gator Nation so special. I was born a Gator, I played as a Gator, and I'll always be a Gator!

"God Bless and Go Gators!"

Tebow is the sixth player to receive the honor. He will join linebacker Wilber Marshall, running back Emmitt Smith, 1966 Heisman winner and coach Steve Spurrier, 1996 Heisman winner Danny Wuerffel and defensive end Jack Youngblood.

A three-time Heisman Trophy finalist, Tebow posted a 35-6 mark during his four seasons (2006-09) at Florida.

The 25th overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Broncos, Tebow led Denver to an 8-6 record in 14 starts in 2010 and 2011. He spent 2012 as a reserve with the New York Jets, his last regular-season NFL action.

Tebow currently is a minor league baseball player in the New York Mets organization as well as an SEC Network analyst.
