“NFL FILMS PRESENTS: THE STREET EAGLE”
PREMIERES TUESDAY OCTOBER 6TH, 7:30PM/ET ON FOX SPORTS 1
NFL Films spent over a year documenting the extraordinary exploits, on and off the field, of Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl linebacker Connor Barwin. Tonight on “NFL Films Presents” find out why Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker Connor Barwin is called “The Street Eagle.”
In 2014, Barwin led the NFC with 14 and-a-half sacks, but his impact on Philadelphia has been much greater than that. With the creation of the Make The World Better Foundation, Barwin focuses on engaging the community he lives in. Tonight find out how.
“Not only do I want to be the best linebacker in the NFL and be on the best team in the NFL, but I very much want to live in the best city. Everything I’m trying to do is working for that.”
Tonight see the world premiere of “NFL Films Presents: The Street Eagle” Tuesday, October 6that 7:30PM/ET on Fox Sports 1.
