Tim Tebow Produces Faith-Based Movie

It would be something of an understatement to say that Tim Tebow has led an amazing and exemplary life. That extraordinary journey takes a new path as he and his brother, Robby, co-produce the faith-based film “Run the Race.”

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback with the Florida Gators was a former first-round draft pick by the Denver Broncos, worked as a color commentator after pro-football before moving onto play semi-pro and professional baseball. During his sports career, his deep Christian faith has inspired many and also been the source of controversy.

In college, the NCAA developed “The Tebow Rule” that prohibited players from adding messages in their eye black. Tebow commonly wrote Bible verses in his.

In the NFL, he earned notoriety for kneeling with bowed head in prayer before games. Fans began calling it “Tebowing.” The league pushed back on the practice. The well-known Christian athlete has also penned a New York Times best-seller called “Through My Eyes: A Quarterback’s Journey.” The autobiography was also named the No. 1 sports book of 2011.

Through it all, Tebow has remained humble, citing his faith in God as the source of strength that has allowed him to accomplish extraordinary things.

“I really believe faith is like a muscle, and the more you work it, the stronger it grows. Sometimes you might strain that muscle too and take a step back, and you have to get it stronger again,” he reportedly said.

“I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future. That’s a quote I’ve said since I was probably 18 years old and a freshman in college, and it’s one of my favorites because He has a better plan than I do, and I’m grateful for that.”

Faith and a Feature Film

Artists and philosophers often ask: “does life mirror art or art reflect life?” That’s an interesting question as Tebow teams up with his real-life brother to co-produce a feature film about the physical and spiritual adversity faced by two fictional brothers.

“’Run the Race’ is about so much more than football. This is a story about overcoming the hard issues of life, about the power of sacrifice, the power of family, and the power of forgiveness,” Tebow reportedly said. “I love being a part of a project like this because it will impact lives, inspire hope, and even prompt action. When I read the script, I knew this was an important project to get behind.”

The story follows a pair of brothers desperate to break through to a better life.

“It’s exciting,” Tebow reportedly said. “I’ve received a lot of scripts over the years. But I haven’t always wanted to be in filmmaking. I want to do the right films, films that will encourage or inspire or move people.”

The movie deals with Zack and David abandoned by their father and who recently lost their mother. Zack, is the All-State football star who has positioned himself for a college scholarship. Zack sees a college degree as his ticket to a better life for the tightly-connected brothers.

After suffering a season-ending injury, that dream fades and his brother, David, focuses on track as a way to salvage their seemingly shattered future.

“Sports really is a microcosm of how life is,” NFL legend Eddie George said, who plays a recruiter in the film. “Somebody’s going to deal with adversity. Somebody’s going to deal with loss. Somebody’s going to deal with pain. Somebody’s going to deal with victory and success. I think this film reflects that.”

In many ways, it’s a story that mirrors Tim Tebow’s life. His college football career was almost mythic. He achieved a pair of national championships and the highest individual award in all of college football. The first-round draft pick saw immediate success in the NFL. But after being overwhelmed by a Tom Brady-led New England Patriots team heading into a Super Bowl, the Broncos turned to another football legend, Peyton Manning.

Faith and Family

Tebow’s sports career began a slow downward spiral. Fortunately, his faith buoyed him through adversity. He’s never lost sight that he’s a servant of God and plays an important inspirational role. Co-producing “Run the Race” appears to be another leg in his spiritual journey.

“There are a lot of similarities in my life between two brothers supporting one another, having each other’s back, believing in one another,” Tebow reportedly said. “My family and my brother have always given me so much support. That’s made such a big impact on me being able to go after my dreams.”

The former sports icon and his brother, Robby, are now immersed in a project that reflects their spiritual devotion. The fictional pair of brothers find hope by running toward God. “Run the Race” is currently in post-production and a release date is expected soon.
