ESPN, NFL Campaign Honors Hispanics

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and to highlight the influence of Hispanic players in the National Football League, ESPN and the league this week are launching "Let's Continue Making History," a multiplatform campaign.

The effort will roll out across several ESPN and ESPN Deportes platforms, including television, radio, print and online.

The campaign, which aims at highlighting the successes of Hispanic NFL players, includes a series of television spots featuring ESPN Deportes commentator Álvaro Martin and former NFL kicker and Super Bowl champion Raúl Allegre.
