'Run the Race' (scene)A star Christian athlete is trying to score big with a new faith-based motion picture coming to theaters early next year.

Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has teamed up with his brother Robby to make the movie Run the Race. Tebow, who is now pursuing a Major League Baseball career, said of the film: "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. I love being a part of a project like this because it will impact lives." (See trailer below)

Chris Dowling, the film's director and co-writer, gives a synopsis of the story.

"There's two [young] brothers and they've got nothing: Dad has walked out, Mom has died, and it's literally Hey, let's link arms and let's just move forward and keep moving," he explains. "And then [there's] the journey it takes and then the layers between sports, faith, first love – there's just a lot to it."

Dowling tells OneNewsNow those themes are layered in organically. "So there's layers of faith, there's layers of family, there's layers of sports – but ultimately none of it is in-your-face [stuff] or 'This is a movie about [such and such].' It's just a good movie."

Run the Race is set to hit movie theaters on February 22. Tebow, co-executive producer with his brother, makes an appearance in the movie as himself; and another Heisman Trophy winner, Eddie George, plays a main role in the film as well.
