Florida Gators Maurkice Pouncey and Aaron Hernandez win national awards

LAKE BUENA VISTA -- Here at wonderful Disney World for the ESPN college football awards show. Quarterback Tim Tebow left empty handed but Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey and tight end Aaron Hernandez won awards.

Pouncey won the Rimington Trophy for the nation's best center and Hernandez won the John Mackey Award, given to the nation's top tight end. Afterwards, Pouncey said that UF's players are still having trouble getting over the loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship but added that they have already started breaking down film on Cincinnati. No.5 Florida (12-1) plays No.4 Cincinnati on Jan.1 in the Sugar Bowl.

Tebow didn't leave empty handed. He arrived and left with his "date", a 20 yr old who survived brain surgery just over a yr ago. Talk about a true champion on AND off the field!!!!!!! Proud to be a GATOR!

Went to a club in orlando and saw the pouncey twins, toby gerhart, chas henry, joe haden, terrence "mount" cody, and mark ingram hanging out... pretty awesome to be in the same room as all those future NFL players
