FAIRHOPE, Ala. – Tim Tebow walked off the field at Fairhope Stadium as if he had never left the friendly confines of “The Swamp,” home of the Florida Gators.
There were children crying for autographs, prepubescent girls begging for just one glance, and grown men jostling for a high five. In SEC country, Tebow can do no wrong.
Except on the field during the Senior Bowl workouts. There, the Florida quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and perhaps college football’s most celebrated player faces scrutiny like never before. Can the shotgun-style slinger with the long windup be an NFL quarterback?
