Tim Tebow, the Broncos back-up, former Florida Gator great and Jesus Christ football star, is writing a memoir. I learned that this morning when I got my regular update from Tebow’s fan page on Facebook.

“Through My Eyes” will be published by HarperCollins. Here’s the story from Tebow’s foundation’s website:

Tebow’s much publicized life is one of most inspirational stories in American sports. He captivated the country with his relentless will to succeed on the field and his passion for others. The memoir will reveal how this remarkable young man constantly strives to be the best, has always overcome the odds and how he has managed to do so while remaining true to his faith and family values.

Tebow, the son of Christian missionaries, has a unique story to tell. From the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting career as the most celebrated football player in Florida Gators history and his first round draft selection by the Denver Broncos, there’s been a lot said about Tim Tebow. Now he will have the chance to inspire readers with his own, first-hand account of his personal story.

“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to share my story of faith, family and football,” said Tebow, ‘”and look forward to taking readers inside my life, both on and off the field. As a kid, you always dream of becoming something great. Whether that dream is to become an astronaut, a famous musician, the CEO of a large company, the President, an NFL Quarterback or anything else, you will undoubtedly face all kinds of adversity on your journey. This is my story about how I was able to fulfill my dream and I hope it can inspire people of all ages that are aspiring to fulfill their dreams.”
