A drama based on the life of college football hero Ernie Davis, the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy.
Career team record at Syracuse: 11-0 in 1959, 7-2 in 1960, and 8-3 in 1961.
Texas Longhorn player:
I'm gonna kick your black ass back to Africa boy!
Jack Buckley: Oh yeah? Too bad I'm from Philly.
When Jack Buckley and Ernie Davis are walking into the dance, JB is complaining about the Syracuse newspaper article declaring Pete Dawkins of Army as the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. The camera pans to the newspaper, which reveals a two-lined stacked headline above a three-column width article that has a column-width photo centered below the header. The shot zooms in for a close-up, but now the headline is one line and the photo is two columns wide with the byline to the right of the photo.
