Gale Sayers, Pro Hall of Famer, Browns Legend Running Back Passes At 77

From time to time in athletics, a person will make a tremendous impression with his or her performances on the field or court and you become a fan and follower of that person not only through athletics but also in their non-athletic life.

For those of us older sports fans, may we introduce to our younger sports fans one of our HEROES, running back Gale Sayers of the University of Kansas & the Cleveland Browns.

Please check out the life of Gale Sayers, both on & off the field, if you are looking at some of life's highlights and struggles and the possible ways to handle both as Gale did.  He is truely inspirational!

Please read the articles below on Gale and find the movie "Brian's Song" and his autobiography "I Am Third." Hopefully you will be inspired and will receive a blessing by this tremendous man and athlete.

("Many casual fans might know Sayers through the 1971 movie “Brian’s Song,” which chronicled Sayers’ friendship with teammate Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer.

The movie, in which Sayers was played by Billy Dee Williams and Piccolo was played by James Caan, was based on parts of Sayers’ autobiography “I Am Third.”  The book’s title was a shortened version of his words: “The Lord is first, my friends are second, and I am third.”)

GALE SAYERS WILL BE MISSED!       WHAT A LEGACY!...        #40!...
