About The Home Team Series at RFC:
These athletes have traveled the world with their sport but always call Shreveport-Bossier home. This month, they’ve selected their favorite sports movies to screen for you. Join us each week for a great movie and a Q&A with our local sports star guests. And because no sports event is complete without a sportscaster, former and current sports journalists Darrell Rebouche and Tim Fletcher will serve as emcees throughout the month.
Other screenings include (all movies at 5:30 p.m.):
August 3: MAJOR LEAGUE with Todd Walker
August 11: RACE with Hollis Conway
August 25: WHEN WE WERE KINGS with Tim Dement
