Los Angeles – Leading up to the NFL Draft, FOX Sports and House of Athlete (HOA) showcase the demanding journey of NFL prospects in HOUSE OF ATHLETE: GOING PRO, a six-part docuseries beginning Wednesday, March 24 at 5:30 PM ET on FS1.
HOUSE OF ATHLETE: GOING PRO goes beyond the sidelines with young athletes chasing their NFL dreams in unprecedented times. As college seasons have been cut short, bowl games are cancelled and the NFL Combine is called off, these prospects are faced with unique obstacles that are often beyond their control.
Former NFL star and co-host of FS1’s FIRST THINGS FIRST Brandon Marshall enlists the help of some of his NFL family to lead athletes in this transition as they prepare for the NFL Draft at HOA, Marshall’s new state-of-the-art fitness facility and lifestyle brand located in South Florida. FOX Sports colleague Michael Vick and veteran players Ryan Clark, Ray Lewis and Donte Stallworth are joined by head coach Hue Jackson to provide on-field training as well as intangible life skills that separate the good from the great.
“House of Athlete is thrilled to work with FOX Sports to deliver a tremendous platform for these athletes and their preparations for the NFL Draft,” said Marshall, the founder of HOA. “The GOING PRO series on FS1 is a great way for fans to get to know these prospects by giving them a front-row seat to everything they put into this process, including exciting footage from our HOA Scouting Combine showcase that took place on March 4th and 5th. At HOA, we’re honored to be leading the way and providing the resources necessary for these players to reach their dreams. Just like everything we do, this series is going to be raw and personal and true to who these future NFL stars are and what we at HOA are all about.”
