Soccer Star Tim Howard Inks Book Deal

Tim HowardSoccer star Tim Howard has landed a memoir deal with HarperCollins. Earlier this year, he served as the goalkeeper for Team USA in the 2014 World Cup.

Howard (pictured, via) will share the story of how he became a professional athlete while enduring a lifelong battle with Tourette’s Syndrome. The publisher will release both an adult and a young reader’s editions of The Keeper on December 9th.

Howard had this statement in the press release: “I’ve always wanted to write a book. My goal is to share many of the highs and lows of my journey—with a little bit of the magic of the World Cup and the English Premier League—in the hope that it will provide others with some inspiration to reach for their own dreams.”
