Co-hosted by acclaimed storyteller Yogi Roth and former NFL player Spencer Paysinger, whose life story serves as the inspiration for The CW’s hit series ALL AMERICAN, ALL AMERICAN STORIES profiles eight incredible athletes who overcame unimaginable obstacles in their relentless pursuit of greatness. Yogi Roth sits down with each athlete and as they share their story in a unique and powerful way, with additional insight and commentary provided by co-host Spencer Paysinger, who triumphed over his own obstacles to make it to the NFL.
Paysinger was named the unanimous league MVP while also garnering All-CIF accolades. After graduating from Beverly Hills High School, he accepted an athletic scholarship to the University of Oregon. He fulfilled his goal of playing seven seasons in the NFL and retired on New Year’s Eve in 2017 to pursue a career in writing and producing. A New York Times best-selling author, Pac-12 on air football analyst, producer/director and “adventureprenuer,” Roth has traveled and produced content in the world of sport for the last 20 years, which makes him uniquely suited for this documentary series.
ALL AMERICAN STORIES is produced by CW Seed and Blue Ox Films, with executive producers Yogi Roth, Taylor Kavanaugh and Jonathan Baruch
