WILL TIM TEBOW’S REINVENTION BEAR FRUIT FOR THE EAGLES IN 2015?

Tim Tebow is a regular at the University of Southern California’s baseball stadium.

He has been visiting off and on for almost two years in hopes of reviving his NFL career, which he essentially put in the hands of two retired baseball pitchers steeped in science and novel training techniques: Pitchers throw footballs, quarterbacks throw baseballs and, during morning lectures that can feel like physics lessons, athletes are quizzed on subjects like “kinetic awareness,” “biomechanical variables” and “proprioception.”

The science involves leaps of faith, too. Athletes, for example, are encouraged to run backward downhill, fast and on a six-degree grade. That, along with 270-plus exercises, high-tech motion analysis and more are used to establish proper throwing mechanics — something that long eluded Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner who is making another try at the NFL, this time with the Eagles.
