THIS IS EPISODE 253 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Chris Dowling is a writer, producer and director known for his work on such films as “Where Hope Grows” and “Priceless,” and the television series “Repo Games.” Dowling earned his radio/television/film degree from the University of Texas and moved to Los Angeles in 2009, when he wrote and directed his debut film “Rock Slyde,” featuring Patrick Warburton.
As the director and co-writer of the new film “Run The Race,” Dowling joins Tim Tebow and his brother, Robby, to help bring a story of hope told through the game of football. In theaters Friday, “Run The Race” shows what’s possible when you run to — instead of from — the overwhelming love of God.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Dowling about the new movie, how he became a part of it, having Tim Tebow as an executive producer, faith in Hollywood, his powerful story of coming to Christ, and his love for the Dallas Cowboys.

#fbf. Day 1 of shooting "Run the Race." The absolute craziest way to start a production: managing 4 camera crews shooting a championship high school football game in Birmingham. 800 people. My actors all dressed in uniform — running on the field, my coach yelling at the real players like he was their coach, actors in the stands while we shoot narrative pieces. Total chaos. But somehow we made it. Huge thanks to this amazing crew including my dude here CJ who stepped in and killed it for me. #football #movies #runtheracemovie #timtebow #setlife
