American soccer player Tim Howard has book deal

NEW YORK (AP) — American soccer hero and international celebrity Tim Howard has advanced to the next round of fame: a book deal. Howard has penned a memoir that will be published Dec. 9 by HarperCollins Publishers. The publisher said Monday that "The Keeper" will be available in adult and young adult editions. In a statement issued through HarperCollins, the 35-year-old Howard says he was eager to share the highs and lows of his life and career, including his battles with Tourette's syndrome, and hopes to inspire others. World Cup fans were dazzled this summer by Howard's record-setting 16 saves in the Americans' 2-1 loss in extra time to Belgium in the second round. He recently agreed to a multiyear deal to serve as a commentator for NBC Sports Group.
