'Friday Night Tykes': Football players give autistic teammate a boost -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Friday Night Tykes, Esquire Network’s docuseries about youth football in San Antonio, Texas, is completely fascinating. I’ve already been sucked into the world of mini-footballers, crazy parents, coaches, and “momagers” that make up the rotating cast of characters. But this exclusive clip from next week’s all-new episode particularly won me over. It introduces Grayson Christian, an autistic boy who’s given the chance to score a touchdown for his team. Break out your tissues, and then check out Friday Night Tykes on Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Esquire Network explores Texas youth football with 'Friday Night Tykes' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose. Because if you do, the coach is not going to be happy. Football is king in Texas, and Esquire Network’s original 10-part docuseries Friday Night Tykes gives viewers an inside look at the world of youth football in the San Antonio region. The show follows five teams from the Texas Youth Football Association (TYFA) on and off the field throughout the 2013 season. It’s basically Friday Night Lights with 8 and 9 year olds.

TLC made its mark with Toddlers & Tiaras, drumming up controversy about parents living vicariously through their children. And Friday Night Tykes will likely have a similar effect. The show will tackle serious questions like: How much competition is too much? Is the sport safe for young children? And at what price are we pushing our kids to win? Regardless of the answers, it’s fascinating to watch. Need more proof? In this exclusive clip, Lisa Connell, the “momager” of the Jr. Broncos says she was done with the “everybody gets a trophy” and a “fair chance” league and was ready for her son, Colby, to take on the competition at the next level.
