Jordan McNair's death highlighted on HBO's 'Real Sports' investigation into college strength coaches

The death of Maryland football player Jordan McNair played a central part in a report by HBO’s “Real Sports” looking into the role of college football strength coaches.

The 21-minute report, one of three stories that aired on the HBO show Tuesday night, started and ended with McNair’s parents, Martin McNair and Tonya Wilson, being interviewed.

Their 19-year-old son, a redshirt freshman offensive lineman, died June 13, 15 days after suffering heatstroke during a team conditioning test.

The McNairs, who have created a foundation in their son’s name, have also appeared on ABC, CNN and ESPN to speak out about his death.
