For anyone too young to remember our former running back, do a little googling on #41 and watch the movie “Brian’s Song.” James Caan played Brian and Billy Dee Williams played Gale Sayers. The trailer is above.
You’ll want some tissues…just sayin’!
Brian Piccolo Park is scheduled to open next year in North Beverly. It will be on the very same block where Brian lived, near the 91st Street Metra depot.
Of course there will be a football field! The goal is to “inspire regular outdoor athletic activity in honor of Brian.”
