Showtime doc “A Game of Honor” dives deep into Army-Navy game


College football has a lot going against it lately. The constant scandals that only seem to get uglier with each revelation are rivaled only by the heated discussion over the morality of paying the players nothing while the colleges make millions. But one thing that remains true and pure is the annual Army-Navy game. The new documentary, A Game of Honor, provides unprecedented access to the football programs at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. Viewers will delve deep into the back stories of the student athletes involved in the game, and just how unique the challenges facing the cadets and midshipmen are. The film premieres Dec. 21 on Showtime, but a 10-episode web series leading up to the film begins Monday, Oct. 17, at New episodes will appear each week until the premiere.
