The Bos­ton Globe's Spot­light Team sits down and in­ves­ti­gates foot­ball's Aaron Her­nan­dez as he climbed the lad­der from high school sports in Bris­tol to play­ing with the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots and hit­ting the stage of the Su­per Bowl. But as quickly as he moved closer to his epic dream, he found him­self a con­victed mur­derer years later.

The in­ves­tiga­tive team looks at the story of An­thony Her­nan­dez's life through the crimes he com­mit­ted and how foot­ball via brain dam­age may have con­trib­uted to his vi­o­lent be­hav­ior. Were his sex­ual in­ter­ests in a mas­cu­line foot­ball cul­ture also an el­e­ment to how he ap­proached his life? Did elite coach in­ter­ests trump his needs when he wasn't ready to par­tic­i­pate as a ma­ture adult de­s­pute his ski­ils? The pod­cast shares new doc­u­ments as well as au­dio about his life, death and what has taken place since.
