(Week 2 and Week 3)

     "See The Pros" is a vintage NFL football show, made for television, which first aired in time for Week #2 of the 1958 NFL season. Hosted by former football great Glenn Davis, the show gives a preview of the upcoming NFL games of the week, players to watch for, and a special interview with a player on the field and in uniform. The show is sponsored by Zerex antifreeze and even contains the original Zerex antifreeze TV commercials.
