"The Believer" A Story of the Life and Career of Steve Spurrier

ESPN Films presents a TackleBox Films production "The Believer" to air on The SEC Network Wednesday, Aug. 27th at 8/7c.  The 90 minute documentary based on the life and career of South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier was Produced and Narrated by Kenny Chesney and Directed by Shaun Silva of TackleBox Films. "With such a colorful and very often controversial coach as Steve Spurrier, it was important to me to show that there's more to "The Head Ball Coach" than what we see on game day every Saturday afternoon or in the media", says director Shaun Silva.

"The Believer" which is airing as part of ESPN Films' SEC Storied series, features Steve Spurrier's amazing career in the SEC both as a Heisman Trophy winner at Florida, then returning to Florida as head coach where he would win a National Championship in 1996. Premiering the night before South Carolina's season opener, the film brings us up to current day where he has successfully transformed the Gamecocks into a national power.  Click here to view the trailer.
