The reason why Netflix was chillin at Northwood

Louisiana QB featured in Netflix's documentary series, "QB1: Beyond the Lights"

We saw the 5-man crew with our our eyes, and cameras. The reason why Netflix was at Northwood was to see a very popular signal caller.

The Netflix’s documentary series, “QB1: Beyond the Lights,” was at Northwood during the quarterfinal game between Northwood and Warren Easton.

It’s sort of the “Hard Knocks” of elite high school quarterbacks in the country – and Warren Easton’s Lance LeGendre is part of Season 3, one of three quarterbacks in the nation followed during their last high school season before moving on to Division I college football.

The show is currently filming for Season 3, and when Warren Easton and Lance LeGendre came to town, so did a 5-man film crew, whose product will probably be released in February 2019 (we’re just assuming it’ll be released in February because season’s 1 and 2 were both released in February).

QB1: Beyond the Lights was created by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights), The series gives an inside look into the lives of top college football QB recruits.

Lance LeGendre was committed to Kansas, before de-committing. He has offers from Alabama, LSU, and anyone else in the market for the number 6 duel threat QB in the country – which is every school.

Warren Easton defeated Northwood 34-6 on Friday, November 23 in the quarterfinals of the LHSAA 4A playoff bracket.

Warren Easton moves on to plays Leesville in the semifinals, and hopes to avenge a regular season loss against rival Edna Karr, in the state championship.

Northwood finished the 2018 season with a 12-0 record, a district title, 2 playoff wins, and Netflix chilling at one of their games. We’re looking forward to seeing if our Northwood “hype videos” will make the show… (haha)
