Game Day Flashback: The Jump Pass

Tebow's break out play as a Florida Gator was the jump pass against LSU in 2006, and we are proud to say that we were there. And as fans, we were more than a little excited when a friend spotted us in this video. That's right, somewhere in this video we are a distinguishable blur.

As football fans, you grow up hearing about "the greats" of the game; the four horseman of the apocalypse, Jim Thorpe, Bronko Nagurski, et al. But they are just far away enough in history that they seem as real as Hercules and Spartan warriors.

When you realize that one of the best to play the game plays for your team, in your home town, and walks the same streets that you do, it's pretty exciting. To be a part of history as a witness, if even as a blur, is pretty cool.

We hope you are enjoying this season, concussion and all, Gators.
Savor every game of it! And you never know, we may see the jump pass again tonight!
