Tim Tebow “On a Mission” Documentary
A few days ago, a guy named Josh reached about to me about a new documentary about Tim Tebow entitled “Tim Tebow: On a Mission”. Josh, who is the PR manager on the film was nice enough to grant me a full-access sneak peak to the film, which I watched in full. “Tim Tebow: On a Mission” is actually being released to the public on September 11th via DVD through Amazon, but I figured give you Jets fans a little bit of an introduction to the film. Below I’ve written a small review and included the official details of the documentary.
After watching this film, it’s really hard not to like or root for Tim Tebow. It’s obvious that Tebow is a special player, who has been a unique talent ever since he was a young kid. “Tim Tebow On a Mission” is an interesting look at the entire lifespan of Tebow so far, including his high school and college football days, his faith and religion, and more. It features tons of interviews from people who have interacted with Tebow in various capacities, including former coaches/teammates and media members. There is a lot of information on Tim Tebow’s religious beliefs and faith towards the later half of the documentary, so if that kind of things offend you, that may be something to consider. However, If you’re a Tebow fan in any capacity, I’d definitely recommend taking a look at this documentary once it’s officially released.
