Long Beach Legend Willie McGinest Featured In NFL Doc Tonight

Long Beach Poly alum and city legend Willie McGinest will be featured on the NFL Network in a one-hour documentary this evening at 5 p.m. Long Beach time; the show is already slotted to re-air several times in the coming week.

A Football Life: Willie McGinest will take a deep look into the Long Beach roots of McGinest, who was a fourth-overall NFL Draft selection by the Patriots and who went on to win three Super Bowl Rings in New England. The preview features glowing praise from Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as well as Bill Parcells, all of whom sat down for interviews with the documentarians.

We’ll have a recap of the episode up early next week for those who can’t catch it.
