​GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WFLA) – Two-time National Champion and 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow will be inducted into the University of Florida Football's Ring of Honor, the school announced Wednesday.

Tebow, who is one of the most decorated athletes in college football history, will be honored during the Florida-LSU game on Oct. 6. His name will be unveiled and displayed in the North Endzone of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

The display, which will be approximately 18-feet wide and five feet high, will now feature Tebow, along with Wilber Marshall, Emmitt Smith, Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Jack Youngblood. 

Marshall was the most recent inductee (Sept. 29, 2007), while the other four members were part of the original unveiling back on Sept. 30, 2006 as part of the 100-year Celebration of Gator Football.

"I am so humbled and thankful to be able to receive this blessing, being inducted into the Ring of Honor," Tebow said. "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,” said Tebow in a University of Florida news release.
