Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow 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 amassed an unparalleled resume—winning two BCS national championships, 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 brings readers everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell—from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.
At every step, Tebow’s life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.
I’m one of those people that has a lot of the basic knowledge on football down, but I’m also one of those people who sits in front of the TV on Super Bowl day at my friend’s house more focused on the hot wings and the commercials than the game.
Don’t get me wrong, I was cheering and happy just along with everyone else when the Ravens beat the 49ers at the XLVII Super Bowl 2013, but I’m not a huge fan or anything. (Looking forward to the World Cup now…) Almost all the rudimentary smarts I have on football came from my ‘football phase’, and that football phase came from this book and The Blind Side.
This book was awesome. It taught me a lot and was a lot of fun in the process, while making me come to admire Tim Tebow. I believe that for football fans, the numerous chapters in this book recounting football memories will be fun and exciting.
I think this book is heartwarming, beautifully written and really displays Tim Tebow’s faith in God. This story really inspired me and I think that Tim Tebow’s story of faith is really amazing. I loved how he shared so much about his times on missions as a kid. There are plenty of kids at my church that started going since they were small…
The passion that he displays for his sport is remarkable and inspiring. I really loved this book and I hope that others will give it a try, even those who are not Gators or Jets fans. 0‿0 4.5 stars.
