Brian Piccolo: A Short Season
Chicago Bears running back Brian Piccolo died of cancer at age 26, leaving behind a young wife, three daughters, a host of friends -- and a legend.

But A Short Season goes far beyond the film to portray the sometimes vicious world of pro football, the always brutal battle against a killer disease, and the sweetness of Brian Piccolo himself.
