The documentary film America's First Sport, written and directed by Dennis Deninger of Cheshire, will air this Saturday, March 29, at 11 a.m. on ESPNU. The film covers the ancient history, culture and rapid expansion of lacrosse in North America and around the world.
Deninger produced the one-hour film for Syracuse University. The final projects done by students in his "History of Sport" class provided the research upon which the documentary is based.
Dennis Deninger spent 25 years as a production executive for ESPN before his appointment as a professor of practice at Syracuse. Three times he has been honored with Emmy Awards for his work in sports television.
