Charlotte, N.C. - Raycom Sports' Emmy Award-winning summer television series, "Havoline Football Saturdays in the South," concludes this weekend with the sixth and final one-hour episode, hosted by Tim Brando and syndicated in 60 markets throughout the greater southeast and Atlantic coast.

The finale features Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer. After leading the ACC in rushing in 2008 and being the first sophomore honored as the ACC Player of the Year, he returns with his "big hitting, home run speed" style of play. But it is his relationship with his parents and younger brother that keep him grounded. Go home with us as we profile the man named "The Diesel."

Study time management with NC State two-sport star Russell Wilson. In addition to being the first freshman quarterback named first team All-ACC last season, he was projected as a third round pick in the 2007 Major League draft before choosing to attend college. Learn why he chose the Wolfpack based on his desire to play football and baseball collegiately. Spend the day with him as he plays in the Spring football game and then suits up for the Wolfpack baseball team that evening.

Finally, visit Haden Sports and Performance in District Heights, Maryland where college athletes are made. Joe Haden, Jr., a former bodybuilder, started the business to train his sons; Joe Haden III, junior cornerback for the Florida Gators, Josh Haden, sophomore running back at Boston College, and Jordan Haden, a high school senior and Florida signee next fall. Spend time with the Hadens at home and in the gym for the workout of your life.

The show will air on Saturday, August 22 at 2 p.m. on WTVD-11 in the Triangle area.
