The #Get2TheGame online video series from American Family Insurance marks its fifth year with the inspiring stories of 12 elite high school football prospects and chronicles the pursuit of their dreams.

Among the athletes featured this fall are quarterbacks Shea Patterson (IMG Academy; Bradenton, Fla.), Jacob Stevens (Lake Stevens, Wash.) and K.J. Costello (Santa Margarita Catholic; Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.) and defensive stars Nick Bosa (St. Thomas Aquinas; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.); Lydell “Mack” Wilson (Carver; Montgomery, Ala.) and Dexter Lawrence (Wake Forest, N.C.).

The videos can be seen on USA TODAY High School Sports, American Family Insurance’s new hub on and via the YouTube channel.

“What sets the series apart is each episode’s ability to let viewers experience the real, raw experience of dreams in the making,” said Nick Baillies, of American Family Insurance. “Over the years, this intimate, behind-the-scenes approach has evolved to engage more than just sports enthusiasts – a resounding reminder that the pursuit of dreams is a universal experience.”

Baillies said the series is a reflection of American Family’s “long commitment to supporting high school sports with partnerships at a national, regional and local level.”

The #Get2TheGame series also features top basketball players. Among the notable alumni are Jabari Parker, Karl-Anthony Towns, Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones, and Aaron Gordon. The basketball players for the 2015-16 season will be published later this year.

“The student-athletes included in G2TG are not only prospects who are highly rated by USA TODAY High School Sports’ ALL-USA program, MaxPreps and Rivals – but also inspiring people who embody the hard work, determination and drive that epitomize dreaming fearlessly,” American Family Insurance’s Anna Pope said.
