Check This Out! QB1: Beyond the Lights

What – QB1: Beyond the Lights 

Where – Netflix

Why – The show is a ten episode television series that follows three high school quarterbacks as they play their final year of high school football before moving on to Division 1 college football. I learned about this show from a friend who had watched it before and had only amazing things to say about it. I went with his recommendation and decided to watch the first episode. I was blown away by how great it was. It gave viewers an inside look into the lives of future star collegiate quarterbacks and how they live their lives.The show focuses on three quarterbacks, Jake Fromm, Tate Martell and Tayvon Bowers. Fromm went to Georgia, Martell went to Ohio State, and Bowers went to Wake Forest. Their stories take place in their homes, their schools, and all throughout the lives for the duration of their senior football season. 

Since I’m a big fan of college football, this show is pretty much perfect. That being said, this show is not for everyone. This show is more for the fans of college, professional, and honestly football in general. Since the show spends a significant portion of the time on their games, people who have little to no interest in the sport will not enjoy this as much as I did. 

It is absolutely worth checking out because you’ll never get such an inside view into a star quarterback’s life, the future of the sport. You learn how they play the game from their perspective. The show goes over their recruiting path and why they chose the schools that they did. It is a great show and it is a must watch for every football fan.
