Ever wonder what it would be like to be up close and on the inside during spring football at a top-ranked Division I school? Fans get that chance next week in a new Sun Sports’ TV special that brings viewers the unique sights and sounds from FSU spring football in Tallahassee. It’s a show unlike any other offering rare access with players and coaches wearing microphones during scrimmages and letting fans see and hear first-hand what goes on. Sun Sports goes inside the locker room, into the weight room, around campus and closer to the action than ever before, uncovering the personalities of players, spotlighting their performance on the field and revealing their personal insight into the coming season for the FSU football program.
Hosted by Sun Sports’ Tom Block, UNDER THE LIGHTS®: SEMINOLE SPRING FOOTBALL is revealing and riveting. The interaction between LB Buster Davis and RB Lorenzo Booker talking back and forth throughout a scrimmage is something not heard outside the confines of the field. Cameras follow top recruit Myron Rolle around campus as he acclimates to college life and follow Booker though a tough workout in the weight room and an even tougher workout during a video game tournament he hosted the night before the spring game. Watch for immediate reaction from Coach Bobby Bowden after a scrimmage and get the inside scoop from coaches Jeff Bowden, Kevin Steele (who was miked), and Mickey Andrews as they coach their players on and off the field. It’s a show not to be missed by FSU fans looking to get inside the program and see what really goes on during spring football.
UNDER THE LIGHTS®: SEMINOLE SPRING FOOTBALL premieres statewide 5/1, 8pm with replays scheduled on Sun Sports 5/2, 1pm; 5/5, 9pm; 5/13, 5:30pm; 5/15, 9pm; 5/17, 8pm; 5/24, 3:30pm; 5/29, 9am (ET).
The acclaimed UNDER THE LIGHTS series draws upon Sun Sports’ longstanding television partnerships with many of the state’s professional and collegiate teams providing viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at some of Florida’s top sports stories and newsmakers away from the playing fields. Given unparalleled access by the schools, coaches and teams, the series allows viewers to witness preparations rarely seen by anyone outside the teams/programs.
