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.
The story of Brian Piccolo's friendship with pro football hall of famer Gale Sayers was told in the film "Brian's Song". It has become a classic. 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.
