SportsLink is producing a sports reality show to pick the best under-the-radar quarterback. "The Ride" puts eight high school quarterbacks on a journey through intense training. The winner gets a roster spot in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the premiere high school football game, on Jan. 9 and is broadcast live on national TV. The show, currently in production, will air on numerous Fox Sports regional networks across the nation, as well as the national network Fox College Sports. Gannett is expected to have digital distribution rights for all 10 thirty-minute episodes.
