From Library Journal
Sayers's 1970 autobiography serves double duty: it is the story of how he catapulted himself out of an Omaha ghetto to become one of the greatest running backs in National Football League history and the tale of his friendship with Chicago Bears teammate Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer. Sayers's memoir was the basis for the film Brian's Song, a remake of which will air soon. A solid title for both sports and black history collections.
