God. Family. Football. is described as a “coming-of-age” unscripted sports series about Duron, who has come out of a 30-year retirement to lead the football program he founded at Evangel Christian Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana, back to national prominence.

With the perennial high school football powerhouse coming off their worst season in school history, redemption is everyone’s goal. As the team faces struggle and triumph both on and off the field, they are united by Coach Denny’s formula for success: “God first, family second, and football third.”

The series is produced by Propagate, Watershed, and Ascending Media Group and is executive produced by Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens, and Drew Buckley. It was created and executive produced by Aaron Benward of Watershed. Jared Goetz of Ascending Media Group also serves as executive producer. Rob Gehring serves as showrunner and executive producer.

“High school football is a transformative experience for 16,000-plus teams and towns across the country, with wins and losses felt not just by the coaches, players, and parents, but the community as a whole,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD original content and programming at Amazon Studios.

“Coach Denny developed a winning strategy for the Eagles over three decades, leading by example through faith, family, and football. We look forward to sharing the team’s comeback story and that familiar Friday-night camaraderie with our Freevee audience, as the Eagles’ emotional and inspirational football season unfolds.”
