ESPN’s National College Football Reporter Joe Schad says Tim Tebow is the greatest college football quarterback of all time.

Tim Tebow, a prolific running and passing quarterback for the Florida Gators, was recently released by the Philadelphia Eagles. His release has not calmed the laudatory comments and fanfare of the exceptional athlete, however.

Recently, on August 20, 2015, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) unveiled its 75th Anniversary All-America Team, and on that list was none other than famed Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow is rated second just behind Roger Staubach, according to FWAA.

But that’s not where Joe Schad thinks he should be ranked.

Here is a transcript of what Joe Schad and ESPN Studio Anchor Chris Cotter had to say:

Chris Cotter: “The first question to come out of this is, is Tim Tebow the second best quarterback ever? I say, no. Emphatically, he is the best college quarterback of all time. Right Joe?”

Joe Schad: “I actually agree with you.”

Chris Cotter: “You agree with me?”

Joe Schad: “I’m totally … When this came up in the media this morning, I thought, my gosh, Tim Tebow.

“I mean, this is a long period of time – 75 years. And then I dug into it, and I thought more about it. And I thought about the 10 times or so I watched this guy from field level, in person. And I watched Tim Tebow be the best leader I’ve ever seen, the most difficult player to bring down on a rush.

“And you know what, everyone talks about how he couldn’t throw the football – 66 percent, the most efficient passer in SEC football history when he finished …”

Chris Cotter: “That’s saying a lot.”

Joe Schad: “You knew he had two national championships. This is a guy who electrified the stadium, who led men. You ask Urban Meyer, he talks about the competitive drive, the will to win.

“The more I thought about it, the more I agreed with you. No quarterback in college football history better than Tim Tebow.”
