ESPN Documentary – Wuerffel’s Way

ESPN, as part of the SEC Storied series, has premiered a new documentary on Executive Director Danny Wuerffel titled, “Wuerffel’s Way.” It recaps his decorated football career, as well as his 18-year journey at Desire Street.

Regarding the media attention promoting the film, Wuerffel was reminiscent of his days as a quarterback saying, “Sometimes the media tends to give you more credit than you deserve. Some of the articles refer to me as the founder of DSM and give me other credits that really should be passed along to the countless other heroes that worked tirelessly over the years at Desire Street.”

The film concludes with Wuerffel’s Guillain-Barré syndrome diagnosis in 2011, and footage of the groundbreaking for a new New Orleans project for Desire Street Ministries, Desire Community Square in the Ninth Ward.

The documentary re-airs on:
– ESPN2 at 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, 9/5 and again on Tuesday, 10/20 at 12:30 a.m.
