Making the type of recovery from a torn ACL that has Chicago Bulls fans drooling, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continues to see his legend grow.
Even still it is rare that a second-year player without a single postseason victory would get his own hour-long documentary on ESPN. Such is the level of stardom the former Heisman winner has reached in our nation’s capitol.
“RGIII: The Will to Win” will debut on ESPN on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 7. There will also be encore presentations on ESPN2 and on ABC’s “ESPN Sports Saturday” block. The documentary — presented by Gatorade Productions, in partnership with NFL Films and ESPN — chronicles Griffin’s rookie season in Washington, the playoff loss to Seattle, his rehab from knee surgery and “more personal off-the-field moments.”
If the actual doc is as solid as the trailer below, featuring RG3’s beat-boxing skills, we’ll be tuning in.
