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.”
Glory Days is sponsored by Rouse’s, Graduate Hotels, Bollinger Shipyards, Reyco, Johnson Rice & Co., the New Orleans Mission, Planet Fitness, Paul E. Atkinson and Versatile Productions.
