ESPN is planning a ’30 For 30′ film special on the life of Haughton’s Joe Delaney. Delaney, who starred for the NFL Kansas City Chiefs after a stellar collegiate career at Northwestern State, died in 1983 attempting to save three children from drowning in a pond at a park in Monroe.

According to the Northwestern State University sports website:

‘The crew of nearly a dozen filmmakers from Los Angeles, Shreveport and Nashville spent nearly five hours doing interviews and shooting footage at the NSU Athletic Fieldhouse, along with Turpin Stadium, where Delaney was a two-time All-America running back in 1979-80 for the Demons.’

Delaney was the 1981 AFC Rookie of the Year for the Chiefs after being drafted by KC in the second round. Delaney gained over 1100 yards in his first season and was a Pro Bowl selection.

A number of ’30 for 30′ documentaries have been nominated for Emmy Awards, as has the series itself. The films highlight the lives and careers of people in the sports world as seen through the eyes of some of the industries top moviemakers.
