Stanford running back Toby Gerhart, one of five Heisman finalists along with Tebow, calls Tebow a "legend" and a "hero."
"When I was getting off the plane today - there are two officers waiting for you to escort you to the baggage claim - they were saying Tebow doesn't even get off the plane because they take him right from the tarmac into a car," Gerhart said. "In all reality, he is a celebrity. He's what college football's all about. He's a leader, a competitor; he's a hero in this day and age."
