Snoop Dogg has revealed time and again how much he loves football, and the former high school player has passed on his athletic gifts to his children. Snoop and one of his sons, a rising college prospect, are the focus of an upcoming ESPN reality series.
The series, Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream, focuses on 17-year-old Cordell Broadus, a star wide receiver for Bishop Gorman High School and one of the most sought after players in the country. Considering the connection to his world famous father, there are doubters who think Cordell’s skills are all hype. Over the course of the five-part series on ESPN, folks will get to see the life of a high school football player and the work Snoop Dogg does in supporting his son’s dreams.
More from ESPN’s press release for the show:
Cordell, 17, is a standout student and prep player, and one of the most sought after recruits in the nation with top schools from Notre Dame to USC vying for him to play for them. Snoop is a constant presence in his football life. He’s a regular attendee at practice and is in constant contact with Cordell’s head coach. When Snoop is on the road and can’t attend a game, he has the game streamed to him, no matter where he is in the world. Over 10 years ago, Snoop started the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) because of his passion for coaching kids. The League has provided thousands of young boys and girls a positive environment to learn skills for life – championing kids to be better citizens on and off the field. Cordell began his football career under his father’s guidance as a player in the SFYL.
With exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Snoop and Cordell as he prepares for the next level, the half-hour show will take viewers into the Broadus home for family dinners, on Snoop’s tour bus as he breaks down game film and on the sidelines for each game of Cordell’s senior season.
Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream debuts on Wednesday, January 14 at 7 p.m. ET. The show will air for consecutive Wednesday nights throughout the month with a fifth and final show airing in mid-February.
