Illegal recruiting, cheating, suspensions. Those may sound like story lines from a typical college football season, and they are all part of a new documentary-style show. The thing is, it's not about college football. It's about eight- and nine-year-old players.

"Friday Night Tykes", which debuts tonight on Esquire Network, follows the players, coaches and parents of five youth football teams in the San Antonio, Texas area.


For more on this, we're joined by Jason Sciavicco, executive producer of "Friday Night Tykes."
