New Market Rebel scores a Touchdown ! ?


GAINESVILLE - After getting the last of the Washington Post put out for the morning I turned on ESPN-News to check out some of the NCAA highlights from yesterday. In my 10 minutes of searching I stumbled across something unusual.

Florida was hosting The Citadel yesterday down in the swamp (Gators won 70-19) and Tim Tebow was having another huge day. Leading 14-0 late in the first quarter, Tebow connected on a 43 yard scoring strike to none other than VBL/New Market Rebels Riley Cooper. The 43 yarder was Cooper's only catch for the game but it did make Sportscenter.

Congrats to Riley... Not sure how many times that has happened in the history of the VBL where a player catches a TD pass from the reining Heisman Trophy winner during a game the following season...
