ESPN HAS A HIT!
4 October 2003 | by (Southern, california) – See all my reviews

ESPN definitely has a hit on their hands with the releasing of Playmakers. Whether you're a football fan or not, Playmakers will definitely have you hooked. The casting of Omar Gooding was genius. The characters are believable and mesh well together. With each passing week you find yourself drawn in and wanting more. I hope the series makes it. If it doesn't, maybe they'll put it on DVD. This is must a must see drama.
