Over the course of the past five years, Tim Tebow has established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football, and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he has amassed an unparalleled resume — winning two BCS national championships at the University of Florida, becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy, and, in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.
Now, in Through My Eyes,Tebow writes about life as he chooses to live it, revealing how his Christian faith, family values, and relentless will to succeed have molded him into the person and athlete he is today.
The son of Christian missionaries, Tebow details his early years—from the circumstances of his birth in the Philippines, to his home-schooled upbringing, to his parents’ emphasis on developing his character and deepening his belief whenever possible. Setting the record straight, he tells the story of his difficult path to becoming a quarterback, a path that was blocked at every stage by coaches telling him he’d never make it, that he should just give up and switch positions.
Taking readers from his first week of Pop Warner practice, to his record-setting career at Florida, to his rookie season in Denver, Tebow talks about his biggest wins and most frustrating losses, showing how through both triumph and defeat he has grown as a leader, as a person, and as a Christian. What emerges is a captivating portrait of a man whose passions demand the best from teammates, whose words inspire faith in others, and whose heart goes into everything he does.
At every step, Tebow’s life has defied convention and expectation. And while parts of his life have been well-documented, these stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. With this book he offers a firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all happened — on the field, behind the scenes, and through his eyes.
