Troy opponent looks up to Tebow

Cory Wilkes has had the unenviable job of practicing as Tebow in the week leading up Saturday's game between Troy and the Gators.

Even though he is five inches shorter, and 60 lbs lighter, he's still the guy. To compensate, he's had to wear two sets of pads.

And what does Wilkes think of Tebow?

"Tim Tebow is a great guy," Wilkes said. "I really look up to him a whole lot. I'm honored to get to imitate him this week."

And how does he imitate Tebow on the practice squad exactly?

"if I get under a whole lot of pressure, I may let one loose with my left hand."
