Kenny Chesney Tells Condredge Holloway Story on ESPN
If you’re a football fan or just like to see someone overcome adversity, you may want to check out Kenny Chesney’s new football documentary, premiering this weekend. “The Color Orange: The Coldredge Holloway Story” is about the University of Tennessee’s earyl 1970’s star player, who became the first African American starting quarterback in the Southeastern Conference.
But Chesney says his movie goes well beyond Hooloway’s on-field accomplishments. What he learned made him want to be a better person, a better friend and better all the way around.
The documentary had a screening Wednesday night at the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville. You can check it out on ESPN as part of their “Year of The Quarterback” series Sunday night at 8.
Here’s a video from ESPN of him talking about the documentary.
