Army linebacker Steve Erzinger and Navy offensive lineman John Dowd are featured in the first Web episode for “A Game of Honor,” a CBS documentary that goes behind the scenes of the Army and Navy football programs. Each week a new “webisode” will air on CBSsports.com leading up to the Army-Navy game Dec. 10. Showtime will then air the final two-hour “docu-drama” on Dec. 21.
This week’s webisode — entitled “In the Trenches” — shows Erzinger going through training at Camp Buckner, New York, while Dowd’s struggles through a two-day course at The Basic School at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia.
“Any time something kicks your ass like this, it’s a little bit humbling,” Dowd says after his first day through the course.
