Football and Physics

This program examines the relationship between Gold Jacket Gale Sayers and his teammate Brian Piccolo. Not only will students examine the historical implications of being one of the first black/white roommates in the NFL, but also the character traits each of these players displayed in order to overcome adversity both on and off the field. A segment from the TV movie Brian's Song will be shown to reinforce the topic.
