4th & Long premiered on SPK on May 18, 2009. This series features twelve amateur hopefuls who will move to Dallas and compete against one another to earn a shot at a coveted spot in Dallas Cowboy training camp next summer and potentially a spot on the team. NFL Hall of Famer and Dallas Cowboy icon Michael Irvin will keep a watchful eye over the contestants and help mold them into champions as they are put through rigorous competition. The twelve football neophytes, six wide receivers and six defensive backs, will be broken into two teams, overseen by notable former Cowboy coaches and players. Guest judges will appear along the way, including other former players, coaches, media personalities and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
