HBO director of sports programming Luis Barragan Ferrer enlists in army and will be deployed to Afghanistan – NYPOST.com

Good luck, and good hunting, SPC Ferrer.

He’s trading ringside glamour for frontline danger.

A rising HBO Sports executive has abandoned the Manhattan high life to enlist in the Army — and will land in Afghanistan any day now as just another grunt.

Luis Barragan Ferrer, 39, left his prestigious position as director of sports programming at the network late last year and set out for a Georgia boot camp. Voluntarily.

“I just feel that I owe this country a great deal,” Barragan said by phone as he prepared for deployment in the battle zone. “I never believed that my education or professional success absolved me of a duty to serve.”
