In December 2009, I - Ronnie C. Wright - writer - decided to wait to write another Bleacher Report article until Florida famed quarterback Tim Tebow got drafted to answer the question, "How would the average fan be moved by his faith? For four months I concentrated on my new book titled:"Fatfree Friday Fitness Through Faith."

To write Fatfree Friday Fitness Through Faith, I developed a journal at the University of Florida, following the spring training camp of the 2010 Florida Gators and included the progress of Tebow at the NFL Combine. (The players and coaches were so focused to the point of not knowing that I was there making notes. However, I made my presence known to the information director.) What impact does faith have on the college athlete and the "average joe" to succeed in the "game of life?" When I interviewed students across campus for the book, I inserted a question about Tebow's faith to discover that it made a significant impact on their personal faith, fitness and football fanaticism. Afterwards, I was even more convinced that one person with faith can "move mountains." Connecting [FANS]Fueling America's National Spirit to score in their personal end-zone.

Before Fatfree Friday Fitness Through Faith, I wrote articles on the 2009 Florida Gators Football Fitness Formula which led to a community-based seminar featuring  [FAITH]Findiing An Innner True Happiness for personal and professional success that  helped launch this book series. The book provides insights into the power of faith on family, friends and fans. Fitness and diet play a prominent role in the book.

On April 22, 2010, Tim Tebow became a member of the NFL's Denver Broncos as quarterback. His journey and his selection brought tears to the eyes of this average fan. In fact, it has inspired the expansion of Fatfree Friday Fitness Through Faith as a documentary to connect humanity through the human spirit linked to a single poem titled:"IF":


Rudyard Kipling


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
Thanks! to Tim Tebow, the Florida Gators and the Denver Broncos for inspiring family, friends & fans to connect to "move mountains." The Fitness Through Faith documentary will travel to Colleges and NFL cities to involve [FANS]Fueling America's National Sport by reading the poem "IF."
