TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The sole survivor of a Florida boating accident that killed two NFL players and a former college football player is releasing a book about the tragedy.

Nick Schuyler recounts the details of the February 2009 fishing trip on the Gulf of Mexico in a book titled "Not Without Hope." It's due out Tuesday.

Schuyler was one of four men on the 21-foot fishing boat that tipped over on the open Gulf. The cold, stormy waters claimed the lives of Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former University of South Florida player William Bleakley. The boat was Cooper's.

Schuyler was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard after 46 hours. The 25-year-old is also a former USF player.
