Part One of the SHOWTIME Sports digital documentary Legacy: Bob Hurley chronicling the potential final season for a Hall of Fame coach and a national basketball institution is available for viewing now across SHOWTIME Sports digital platforms.
The first of six weekly installments documenting Saint Anthony High School is available on SHO.com, the SHOWTIME Sports YouTube channel (@shosports) and the SHOWTIME Sports Facebook page.
Bob Hurley has led the Jersey City boys’ basketball team at Saint Anthony to 28 New Jersey State Championships, including a string of nine straight state titles, but a financial crisis threatens to shutter the inner-city private school if it can’t raise upwards of $10 million in order to keep the school open for the coming years.
Part One of Legacy: Bob Hurley introduces viewers to a coach that has transformed Saint Anthony into the heartbeat of a tough, unforgiving city, and instilled the values of commitment and success in the more than 200 Friars who have graduated and continued their careers at the collegiate level.
Subsequent installments will roll out each Monday throughout the Friars 2016-17 season, following along week-by-week as the dramatic season unfolds with the future of the institution hanging in the balance.
