Act 5


Real success doesn’t come easily. So 40 years after starting their careers with the Buffalo Bills, Charlie and Tony King discover they were the first African-American siblings to play Pro Football on the same team at the same time in 1966: thus, going down in history. When you visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio, you’ll notice that the African-American section is the smallest. They say they’re still working on it. As written on “Charlie and Tony King were grateful Ralph Wilson (Buffalo Bills owner) took a chance to give them the opportunity to play pro football, regardless of race, color and relationship.” It all started on Pike Street in Alliance, Ohio where the King brothers trained all day long with their uncompromising father, just a few miles from Canton, where the Football Hall of Fame is located. In 2008, the dream becomes a reality and the long road to the Hall of Faith becomes the road to the Hall of Fame.
