Tebow wins CLASS award

Posted on: January 1, 2010 9:45 pm

Time for Tim Tebow to make some room in the trophy case, because he was just awarded the Senior CLASS award.

CLASS stands for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School and focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

"This award means so much because it's not just how you play on the field, it's not just what you do in the classroom, but it's what you do as a leader and someone who is going to serve your community," said Tebow. "That's what's most important about this award, because all these guys are great players and they're extremely intelligent, but more importantly, they're good people. They help their community and they make a difference in this world."

The award was chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I coaches, national football media and fans.

The five member "CLASS First Team" was Missouri OL Kurtis Gregory, TCU DE Jerry Hughes, Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour, Texas QB Colt McCoy and Tebow.
