Russell Wilson’s ‘God. Family. Football’ Docuseries Debuts on Freevee

*NFL quarterback Russell Wilson serves as an executive producer on the new Amazon Freevee coming-of-age sports docuseries “God. Family. Football.” — which premieres September 1.

The series follows legendary high school football coach Denny Duron, as he comes out of a 30-year retirement from head coaching to lead the football program he founded at Evangel Christian Academy back to national prominence, per the news release.

Here’s the official synopsis: God. Family. Football. features the rich, diverse personal stories of Evangel’s players, coaching staff, and the broader Shreveport community, set against the dramatic backdrop of the 2022 Louisiana high school football season. With the perennial high school football powerhouse—14 state championships in the last 20 years—coming off their worst season in school history, redemption is everyone’s goal. Pastor Denny Duron has returned to the head coaching position to lead this talented group of kids, with dreams of playing in college and the NFL, into prominence on the field, while molding them into future leaders off of it. As the team faces struggle and triumph on and off the field, they are united by coach Duron’s formula for success: “God first, family second, and football third.”
