Tim Tebow's best days in football are probably behind him, so of course it makes sense he's already writing his memoir. Harper Collins announced that Tebow's book Through My Eyes will be released in April of 2011. The book will of course detail his time with the Florida Gators, but will also detail other parts of his life. You know, all that Christian stuff.
Here's the description from his publishing house:
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.
Twenty-three is always an interesting age for anyone to pen a memoir, but in terms of sales potential it's good timing. Tebow's Broncos jersey has been the highest selling in the NFL since he was drafted. There's still considerably doubt that he'll be able to make it as a marquee NFL QB superstar, but since he's not yet starting, and probably won't next year, his star hasn't been tarnished by disappointment yet.

No word on how much Tebow got out of the book deal, or of course who the ghost writer will be.
