The crowd broke out in loud applause whenever the name of a certain graduate of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences was uttered.
Tebow graduated from UF with a degree in family, youth and community sciences on Saturday after a stay in Gainesville that included two national championships, a Heisman Trophy and a 3.66 grade-point average.
Tebow received more accolades during Saturday's commencement as the outstanding male leader for the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Tebow received the honor for his strong academic record and the more than 70 hours in volunteer community service he logged during the year.
Once UF Alumni Association President Jeffrey Jonasen uttered Tebow's name, the crowd erupted in applause and they cheered loudly again when he was called to walk across the stage as a new graduate.
But the loudest applause of the ceremony was not for Tebow. That came when the graduating seniors who had just been commissioned as officers in the United States military were asked to rise and the crowd rose with them in a standing ovation.
