Did you ever read the book or see the movie Brian's Song. A story about Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayer both played for Chicago Bears, good movie get a chance rent it. Gale Sayers was all over the field and had the ability to juke people and make them miss. The guy was incredible, you couldn't help but enjoy watching him play.

O.K. this might help I googled him here is some info:

Gale Sayers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This kid is a smaller & Lighter , Sayers was 6' 198 in the pros

An interesting side note:

Vinnie Henderson is related to the late Brian Piccolo who grew up in Ft Lauderdale.

Brace yourself when you watch that movie, its the saddest movie I have ever seen.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Another note on Sayers- brief but shining career on the field. The guy was like a ghost. You would see the defense seemingly seal off the run, and then all of a sudden there was this blur that burst through the line. The next thing you saw was Sayers 20 yds. upfield headed for the end zone.

It is a shame he was hurt so early in his career, he was a fun guy to watch and your right now you see him now you don't and then there he goes

IMO:  If you are really going to watch the movie "Brian's Song" (which I'd encourage if you haven't seen it), make sure to watch the original version with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams, NOT the newer remade version.
