“When I was a youngster, all I wanted was to have a chance at playing in the National Football League, so I’m thrilled to be a part of this endeavor. I never imagined that I would be the first African American quarterback selected in the first round. I am aware that was a significant advancement for our culture, Vick said in a statement. “I was always told that I changed the quarterback position, but I also want to give respect to those who paved the way, like Randall Cunningham, Steve McNair, and Donovan McNabb, who were the ones I looked up to as a youngster.
You can trace the development of the Black quarterback back to those who came before us. And now I’m grateful for the dual threat idea, which has improved the game.
Michael and Kijafa Vick, Constance Schwartz-Morini of SMAC Productions, David Gandler, and Pamela Duckworth of Fubo Studios are among the executive producers. Fred Anthony Smith, vice president of non-scripted at SMAC Entertainment, will serve as the show’s director and executive producer.
