The airing of “Outlaw: Life, Death and Texas Football” has been pushed back a week. The documentary, which was originally set to be aired on Fox
Sports Southwest on Aug. 21, will now be shown on Aug. 28 at 7 p.m.
The documentary will now be shown on the Monday before the Texas high school season kicks off.
It has aired in select theaters, including Lufkin, where it was shown over a weekend in front of sold out crowds.
Now it will be available on television for the first time. The documentary focuses on the life of Outlaw with several interviews both from his days as a head coach in Arkansas as well as his time both at Lufkin and Sherman High School in Texas.
It also follows the 2012 Lufkin Panthers in the season following Outlaw’s death under the direction of first-year head Todd Quick. Lufkin would shake off a slow start to advance to the third round of the playoffs before losing in heartbreaking fashion.
Interviews include Dallas Cowboy and former Lufkin Panther Dez Bryant, former Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong, Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt among several current Lufkin High School coaches.
In addition to the documentary being aired on Fox Sports Southwest, fans can still add the documentary to their collection or rent it at various locations.
