Episode 1:

News had broken that the Ontario Bandits opted out of the season just one week before the leagues season opener in Albany, New York. The Lions who previously had two weeks before their first game stepped up to fill the schedule gap, forcing the team to only three days of practice before heading North. Experience the chaos of an ultra-condensed preseason as the 2021 Lions prepare for a season to remember.

The title "Inside the Lines" was created to encapsulate the types of shots captured during the season. Watch games through the lens of a perspective player and experience the energy inside the huddle. The play on words was intentional since "Lines" and "Lions" sound very similar when said out loud.

After capturing roughly 300 hours of footage, Inside the Lines condenses the entire season to approximately 3.5 hours. This includes in-depth interviews from most of the team and coaching staff.

The editing team is currently working to publish the entire series on DVD. The release is scheduled for February and will be available for purchase on We are currently looking for a streaming service to pick up the show as well.
