New Orleans – Glory Days: A Season with the Greenies debuts regionally on Cox Sports Television, Monday, July 19, 2021, from 7pm CST to 7:30pm CST.

Glory  Days  is  formatted  as  a  three-­‐episode  run  with  successive  half-­‐hour episodes on  Tuesday,  July  20,  at  7pm  and  the  last  episode  Wednesday,  July  21,  at 7pm.

Glory   Days   features   the   2020   COVID-­‐season   of   the   Newman   Greenies featuring some of the top prep talent in America including QB  Arch  Manning, the No. 1 QB in the Class of 2023.

Glory Days gives viewers an inside look at one of the top prep programs in America. Only one school has produced three top 15 NFL picks in the last 20 years—Isidore Newman. Those picks were Peyton Manning, Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr.

Glory Days includes highlights of other top recruits including All State left tackle Bo Bordelon, who verbally committed to LSU after the season. WR AJ Johnson, an ESPN Top 200 junior, is also featured in Glory Days. He has verbally committed to LSU.

The Booker T game was aired nationally on ESPN for the first time in Greenie history. It drew 2.5 million viewers over the week on all media.

Also   of   note,   the   series   examines   the   St.   Charles   Catholic   game   which Newman won 14-­‐7 and the State Semifinal game against Lafayette Christian, which Newman lost.   Lafayette Christian beat St. Charles Catholic in the Division III State Championship, 10-­‐7.

Newman legend Peyton Manning makes a cameo in the show as we look back at the 1991 Manning to Manning season where Peyton threw passes to his older brother Cooper Manning. That season kicked off his incredible career. Peyton will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August 2021.

Coach  Nelson  Stewart  has  led  the  program  to  its  best  5-­‐year  run  in  school history.   The popular “Coach Stewart Mic’ed Up” segment returns giving prep fans an inside look at life on the sidelines.

Emmy and Peabody Award-­‐winning journalist Lee Zurik, a Newman graduate and former Greenie football player, is the Narrator of Glory Days.

Said Paul Atkinson, Executive Producer and Creator of the series: “This is best  of  the series  dating  to  2012.   Newman  football  has  an  incredible  history  and each  season is  different,  but  the  storylines  and  record-­‐setting  play  on  the  field against top teams like Country Day, St. Charles Catholic, Booker T Washington and Catholic-­‐New Iberia show that the program is in good hands. This is must see TV for any prep football fan.”
