God, please make this stop.
The next Tebow?
The similarities are remarkable.
At 6 feet 3 and 225 pounds, Florida freshman quarterback Trey Burton is built like Tim Tebow.
Like Tebow, Burton went to a Florida high school. Burton graduated from Venice. Tebow went to Nease in Ponte Vedra.
Like Tebow, Burton entered Florida early, arriving on campus in January.
Like Tebow, his running skills are his strength. Burton rushed for 123 yards and two TDs on 10 carries in the Gators’ spring game.
Like Tebow, he’s spending his freshman year as a backup.
And like Tebow, Burton has a strong Christian faith.
“I just want to do whatever I possibly can to get this team to [the SEC Championship game],” Burton told the Sarasota (Fla.) Herald-Tribune. “I don’t care if it is washing people’s shoes or carrying water bottles. I am not really trying to prove anything to anyone. I am just going to go out there and try to make plays.”
What, no Filipino circumcision experiences to compare? Maybe next summer…
