fspn - changing the way sports stories are told!
Faith, Family, and Sports . . . a life choice that so many of our high impact sports and entertainment figures are committed to living out.
The world of sports has plenty of networks that comprehensively cover the pregame, game time, and post game with up to date coverage of all that happens during the game. Since 2006, fspn has been telling the stories up close, and behind the scenes about athletes, coaches, and other entertainment and sports personalities - who they are off the field, the positive ways they use their platforms, and how they choose to impact our culture. While the world often celebrates the malcontent, the few that do it wrong, fspn is about shining the light on those that dare to be great on and off the field, where faith, family, and sports is a way of life.
