A first team All American fullback at Syracuse, Brown was the NFL's Rookie of the Year in 1957. In nine remarkable NFL seasons, Brown averaged 104 yards per game, a record 5.2 yards per rushing carry, and never missed a game! He rushed for over 1,000 yards in seven seasons, at a time when the NFL season was only 12, and then 14 games long. In 2002, Sporting News named Brown the greatest professional football player of thd 20th century. In 1966, Brown retired from football at the top of his game to pursue a movie career. While his acting skills never matched his football prowess, Brown performed credibly in such films as Ice Station Zebra (1968), 100 Rifles (1969) and Original Gangstas (1996). A community activist, Brown has worked to promote black-owned businesses, to equip ex-convicts with job skills, and to mediate disputes among rival youth gangs. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
