it was amazing

Have you ever been told you could not do something? Does it motivate you? Does it tear you down? Facing adversity can tell a lot about a person. The auto-biography Tim wrote about his life was truly an amazing story. Tim was a dedicated and determined child. He would not take no for an answer. When Tim was a boy, he did 50 pushups and situps a night. He told a story about when he and his brother flexed their arms for their mom and asked who's were bigger and Tim's mom laughed and said Tim's brothers were bigger. That night Tim did pushups until he collapsed. This just showed how competitive Tim was at even a young age. In high school, Tim went to a high school in Jacksonville, the football coach didn't think he could play quarterback, so Tim switched schools. He knew that quarterback was the position for him. He was highly recruited by schools all over the south and he chose to go to Florida. There he won a national championship and won the Heisman, the highest award a collegiate football player can earn. Even after winning the Heisman, NFL scouts doubted his skill at the next level. Once again, Tim rose to the challenge and embraced the doubt. His competitive edge came out. However there was one team that had faith in Tim. The Denver Broncos took the risk and drafted Tim with the 25th pick in the first round. Time is still proving doubters wrong to this day. In my opinion, Tim wrote his book very well. Tebow's story is magical and captivating because it is truly the story of an underdog. He keeps the reader hooked by showing weakness; everybody loves the underdog, and that is what Tim was his whole life and still is.

Samakosky J - Why is it magical? Why does it keep you guessing. What works well about the way it is written - is it a narrative? Are there flashbacks to his childhood? Why do you think Tebow's story is captivating?

Jake Wambaugh Changed up the ending to clear the grey areas.
