Soccer Star Tim Howard: Tending Goal with Tourette's Syndrome

Farley, Todd

Neurology Now . 9(2):16-20, April-May 2013.

Professional soccer player Tim Howard has been called one of the best goalkeepers in the sport—with or without Tourette's syndrome (TS). In school, Howard quickly discovered that, as an athlete, “I wasn't Tim who had TS or Tim who had tics. I was Tim who scored goals or scored baskets or hit home runs,” he says. Off the field, Howard is an advocate for individuals with TS, encouraging them to reach their own goals.
