The true story of the special relationship of pro football players Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo, tragically cut short by Piccolo’s death from cancer. They forged their friendship as rookies in the 1965 Chicago Bears training camp—Sayers the introverted star player, Piccolo the gregarious practical joker with relatively limited football skills—and became the first racially mixed roommates in the NFL. The courage of Piccolo in fighting terminal illness, and of Sayers in dealing with the loss of a close friend, makes for a moving drama of real human emotions. This 119-page book contains the easy-to-read script of the film made from this inspiring story.
