About the Author:

Gale Sayers is a former NFL player known for his designation as the youngest person to ever be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Born in 1943 in Wichita, Kansas, he played college football at the University of Kansas before being drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1965, when he was named Rookie of the Year. He is the coauthor of I Am Third with writer Al Silverman.

Al Silverman is a noted sports writer and the author of ten books and numerous essays published in PlayboySaga, and Sport magazines. Among his publications is I Am Third, co-written with Gale Sayers, which was adapted for the 1971 television film, Brian's Song. Silverman has also worked as an editor and publisher. From 1951 to 1963, he was editor of Sport Magazine and from 1972 to 1988, he was CEO and chairman of Book of the Month Club. From 1989 to 1997, Silverman served as editor and publisher at Viking Press.

From Library Journal:

Sayers's 1970 autobiography serves double duty: it is the story of how he catapulted himself out of an Omaha ghetto to become one of the greatest running backs in National Football League history and the tale of his friendship with Chicago Bears teammate Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer. Sayers's memoir was the basis for the film Brian's Song, a remake of which will air soon. A solid title for both sports and black history collections.
