Drama based on the life of college football hero Ernie Davis, the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. Rob Brown plays Davis, who rose from a poverty-stricken childhood to play for college team the Syracuse Orangemen. Under the tutelage of hard-nosed coach Ben Schwartzwalder (Dennis Quaid), he became not only a star player but also an icon for the burgeoning civil rights movement in the early 1960s. But when tragedy struck the athlete down in his prime, his dreams of taking to the professional field were dashed forever.
