Driskel wary of comparisons to Tebow
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Sophomore Jeff Driskel has heard comparisons to former Gators star Tim Tebow since he was in high school.
They both play quarterback. They are both big and physical for that position. They both came out of high school as top recruits nationally. And they both signed with the Gators.
As Driskel led Florida to a 37-20 win at Tennessee on Saturday, the Tebow comparisons erupted once more on social media. Driskel finished 14 of 20 for 219 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed eight times for 81 yards.
There is one big difference: Tebow helped the Gators win two national titles, and Driskel has two career starts.
Driskel took questions about the Tebow comparisons in stride at his Monday press conference.
