GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida will unveil statues of its three Heisman Trophy winners during halftime of the team's spring game.

Life-sized representations of Steve Spurrier (1966), Danny Wuerffel (1996) and Tim Tebow (2007) will be uncovered on the west side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on April 9. The school says the honorees will have some role in the event. Since South Carolina's spring game is the same day, Spurrier likely will offer a videotaped message to his alma mater.

The statues weigh a combined 17,000 pounds and were provided to the school through private donations.

Florida is one of eight schools with at least three Heisman Trophy winners and one of two programs with at least three quarterbacks who have won college football's most prestigious award.
