After being drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft in April, things have been moving pretty fast for West Texas native Ryan Tannehill. Now Tannehill, who played high school football in Big Spring, Texas and was Texas A&M’s star quarterback, will likely be playing a major role in reality television this fall.

HBO has announced that it will be featuring Tannehill’s new team, the Miami Dolphins, in “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins”. This is the show that gives viewers and inside look at the lives of NFL players, and the daily routines of an NFL franchise. Its 5-episode season is set to kick off August 7th.

Ken Hershman, president of HBO Sports, feels that a rookie head coach will be a big reason people will watch this year.

“This marks the first time that the series has featured a first-year head coach (Joe Philbin), and we are extremely grateful to both Coach Philbin and the entire organization for agreeing to participate. As always, there will be plenty on the line for veterans, free agents and rookies.”

Add into the mix the fact that a rookie quarterback is going to be fighting for the starting position, and you’ve got an interesting plot line. And I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that the 2012 season also marks the 40th anniversary of the Don Shula-led Dolphins accomplished the only perfect season in NFL history.

This is great. I’m glad that football fans will get a chance to see what a terrific guy Ryan Tannehill is off the field.
