Esquire Network Adds Special To 'Friday Night Tykes'

Esquire Network is adding a special as a coda to its controversial docuseries Friday Night Tykes.

Tackling Tykes, a 90-minue special, is scheduled to bow on April 1 at 9 p.m., one week after Friday Night Tykes’ regular-season finale on March 25. The show offered an authentic and provocative glimpse into youth football with exclusive access to 8- and 9-year olds in the rookies division of the San Antonio region of the Texas Youth Football Association. 

Hosted by The Insider’s Kevin Frazier, Tackling Tykes will go beyond a season recap with the cast, and explore issues surrounding competitive youth sports in America. The special will feature coaches, parents, the CEO from the Texas Youth Football Association, NFL players, psychologists and neurologists
