GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Georgia Hall of Famer Herschel Walker and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow first met at the 2007 Heisman Trophy presentation.
Walker was there celebrating the 25th anniversary of his
Heisman. Tebow was one of four finalists, and the winner, that
season. They spent several hours talking about football, family and faith.
They shared the spotlight then, and they're back in it now.
Tebow tied Walker's Southeastern Conference record for career rushing touchdowns last week with the 49th of his career. He could break the mark Saturday in his hometown of Jacksonville -- and maybe just as fittingly -- against Walker's Bulldogs.
