LAKE BUENA VISTA - Florida's Tim Tebow was among four finalists for the Heisman Trophy announced Wednesday.
The sophomore QB will be in New York on Saturday for the ceremony with Missouri QB Chase Daniel, Hawaii QB Colt Brennan and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden.
"It's very prestigious and an honor just to be mentioned with that award," Tebow said Wednesday at a news conference for finalists of the College Football Awards. "To win it would be unbelievable and be a great honor and very humbling experience."
Daniel said he's stunned to find himself in this position but honored. McFadden, the 2006 runnerup, said he believes he has done all he can to earn the award. "It's up to everyone else now," he said. "I feel like I had a great season. I've worked hard, and I've done everything I can."
