Untold, a sports documentary series distributed by Netflix, released “Swamp Kings” Tuesday. 

The documentary series consists of four episodes about the Florida Gators football team from the years 2005 to 2010. In these seasons, the Gators won two national championships, and two SEC championships and former UF quarterback Tim Tebow won the Heisman Trophy. 

The docuseries features interviews from former Florida head coach Urban Meyer and former offensive coordinator Dan Mullen. It also features appearances from Tebow, Brandon Siler, Brandon Spikes and Ahmad Black among others. 

The series takes an inside look and shows footage from each season including practices, training camps and game-by-game footage. 

Some early reactions to the documentary have been a disappointment with the lack of information about the events that occurred during the five years the series covers.  

The series is out now and can be watched on Netflix.
