NCAA Football MVP: Tim Tebow- Few college football players have had two consecutive years like Tim Tebow has had. For the past two years, Tebow has arguably been one of the top 10 players in college football. But, Tebow is more than just statistics he is one of the best leaders in the game.

Golf Player of the Year: Padraig Harrington- Not only is he known to be one of the nicest players on tour; but, he has finally shown the potential that everyone knew he had. It wasn’t long ago that he didn’t have any major tournaments under his belt; in fact, he wasn’t even in the convorsation for the coveted title of “Best Player Without a Major.” But, this year he won not only 1 but two major tournaments, something that even Tiger couldn’t do.

Funniest Athlete: Novak Djokovic- Sometimes he does cross the line a bit; but, doesn’t every comedian do that from time to time? Djokovic’s impersonations of other players can be absolutely hillarious (especially his Maria Sharapova impression), not to mention spot on. Plus, his rendition of  The 12 Days of Christmas in the ATP Tour’s holiday video was funny, as well, particularly because he was dressed as Santa Claus.

Toughest Athlete: Tiger Woods- His win in the US Open is one of the most amazing sporting events that I have ever witnessed. Tiger has always been known for his grit and determination; but, it was never more true than during this event. To watch him grimace in pain and yet shoot amazing shots was mind-boggling. It showed a level of perseverance that I had never witnessed in professional sport; but then again, it’s Tiger and he never ceases to amaze.
