Case Keenum will be beginning two new journeys this fall as the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos and as an author.

Keenum is releasing a book in September entitled Playing for More: Trust Beyond What You Can See, and in the book, Keenum will “share stories from every stage of life and explain how being a Christian helped him navigate the winding paths of both adversity and success in the NFL,” according to a news release about the book.

"I'm a Christian who happens to be a football player," Keenum said. "That's my calling. That's my defining characteristic."

Keenum was born in Brownwood, but grew up in Abilene, where he won a state football championship at Wylie High School in 2004.

Keenum went on to play college football at the University of Houston, where he set virtually every major NCAA football record for quarterbacks.

Keenum signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and he holds a record of 20-18 as a starting quaterback with the Houston Texans, the Los Angeles Rams and the Minnesota Vikings.

In 2017, Keenum led the Minnesota Vikings to a 13-3 record, an NFC North division championship and a victory over the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs and his game-winning touchdown pass in the final seconds of the game, known as the "Minneapolis Miracle," made Keenum part of NFL history.

Keenum, a career journeyman, signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos in March.
