GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Tim Tebow's unprecedented season keeps getting better.
The Florida quarterback won AP Player of the Year honors Tuesday in a vote that was similar to the one that made him the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy.
Tebow received 31 of a possible 58 votes from AP poll voters. Arkansas running back Darren McFadden, the Heisman runner-up, received 19 votes, and Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was third with four votes.
Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon received three votes and West Virginia quarterback Pat White received one vote.
Tebow became the first player in major college history to run for at least 20 touchdowns and throw 20 TD passes in the same season. He accounted for 51 touchdowns, including a Southeastern Conference record 22 rushing, and set a school record with 3,970 yards of total offense.
After helping the Gators win the national title as a part-time playing freshman last year, Tebow proved he could do it all in his first season as a starter.
He was the second-rated passer in the nation and completed 68 percent of his throws after being used almost exclusively as a short-yardage runner last year.
