Tim Tebow's left throwing arm was right on the money.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner zipped a quick pass in the Senate chamber Thursday to Republican lawmaker Steve Wise of Jacksonville -- who even caught the ball -- during a ceremony honoring the University of Florida for winning the 2008 national championship.

Tebow, one of the most celebrated collegiate athletes in history and a walking billboard for his school, was quick to praise lawmakers for their efforts in trying times.

The Gator quarterback and coach Urban Meyer earlier had breakfast with Gov. Charlie Crist at the Governor's Mansion, where Crist and Tebow also played catch.

A year ago, Tebow visited the Capitol to be honored for winning the Heisman Trophy.
