p>Don't just be a game-player; be a game changer. That's the message here.

In each episode, host Kevin Frazier highlights a pro athlete, fan or sport expert who is doing something special to make a difference or give back to the community.

In one segment, for example, surfer Izzy Paskowitz talks about his special surfing camp for autistic kids. In another, NY Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall reveals his struggles with borderline personality disorder and how that led to his non-profit work dedicated to mental health.

Because the EA video game company sponsors the series, each episode also includes a segment devoted to games or gaming. You can get a peek of the behind-the-scenes action of how they create a game and you can learn that colleges and universities now have game design as a respected field of study - which might just inspire any avid gamers in your family.
