Brooklyn’s ASA College to Be Featured on “City Gridiron”

Two-Part special to follow nationally ranked, bowl bound junior college football program

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Jan. 28 – ASA College of Brooklyn, NY, home of New York City’s only nationally ranked football program, will be featured in a two-part television special as part of the local NYC series, “City Gridiron.”

“City Gridiron: ASA College” will air on consecutive Wednesdays – January 30th & February 6th – at 9:30 PM on NYC Life Channel 25 on Time Warner, Verizon Fios, DirecTV & Dish Network and Channel 22 on Cablevision.

“City Gridiron: ASA College” will follow the Avengers of ASA – ranked in the Top-5 of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) polls during the 2012 season – as they navigate through an undefeated regular season, earn their first Northeast Football Conference (NEFC) championship, and compete in the inaugural Carrier Dome Bowl at Syracuse University.

The special will also take an in-depth look at the coaches, players, and administrators that have helped turn Avengers Athletics into a nationally recognized Division I junior college athletic department in only five years of existence.

Cozzi Pictures, creators of the “City Gridiron” series, have been producing NYC sports content since 2008. When asked about the interest in covering ASA, Executive Producer & Director Adam Salazar said, “doing a feature on ASA College was a logical step for us, after covering New York City high school sports for as long as we have. I am a huge proponent of our city’s athletes and their successes and ASA has provided a place for those athletes to continue their dreams. The partnership was a natural fit.”
