Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program is part of a series that features the lives and careers of some of the greatest figures in sports history. This episode, hosted by George Plimpton, profiles football star Lance Alworth. Alworth was a standout as wide receiver, first for the San Diego Chargers and then the Dallas Cowboys. Alworth, whose slender build and grace as a runner earned him the nickname "Bambi," became the first AFL player to be inducted into the hall of fame. Archival film clips, photographs, and interviews with fellow players, coaches, fans, friends, and family tell the story of this sports legend.
