Lives of Military Student-Athletes

Academy Award-Nominated Actor Gary Sinise Narrates
 
CBS Sports Network will air an encore presentation of the critically-acclaimed Showtime documentary-style special, A Game Of Honor, on Sunday, Jan. 8 (10:00 PM-12:30 AM, ET).  A Game of Honor chronicles the season-long journey of the Army Black Knights and Navy Midshipmen preparing to play in a rivalry unmatched by any other in sports—the Army-Navy football game.  Academy Award-nominated actor Gary Sinise narrates the special, which provides unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to both academies and their respective football teams for six months leading up to and during the 112th Army-Navy game.  

A Game Of Honor captures the personal stories of this unique group of men who are rivals on the football field and brothers in arms on the battlefield. As the young men at Army and Navy endure a much different athletic experience than other Division I football players, A Game of Honor showcases the dedication, discipline and determination demanded of the cadets and midshipmen. The documentary-style special reveals their unique journey from summer training to the demands of an elite classroom education to the weekly preparations for the football field, all while training to serve their country in a time of war.  This rigorous passage culminated with the annual Army-Navy game, which this year was played at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C. 

CBS Sports Network is available across the country through local cable, video and teleco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 613 and Dish Network Channel 152.  For more information, including a full programming schedule and how to get CBS Sports Network, go to www.cbssportsnetwork.com.

CBS Sports’ Creative Director, Pete Radovich, Jr. who also serves as coordinating producer for the Emmy-Award winning SHOWTIME series Inside the NFL, serves as director of the documentary-style special. Radovich also co-produces with CBS Sports Coordinating Producer Steve Karasik.
