The biography of Ernie Davis the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy for American Football in 1961 during changing times to segregation during the Civil Rights era. He later succumbs to Leukemia at 23.
Some have sold their Heisman for over $200,000, but holders no longer allowed to sell from 1999 by signing a waiver.

Highly recommended if you like American Football and history.

Inspiring Story

Well told bio, but keeping closer to the real story, especially with the celebratory meal would have put more layers to the story. The football scenes were realistic and the story shows the prejudice although some depth to the views of the white team mates would have improved the film

Great film about an inspiring lad from back in the day. One of my favourite films and since having a blu-ray player, I have loved the quality it brings.
