The Express

Ernie Davis is one of the greatest football players to ever grace the gridiron. Ernie was a star football player at Syracuse University and one of the first Black winners of the 1961 Heisman trophy. Unfortunately, this No. 1, first round draft pick never played in a professional game because he came down with lukemia. The Express shows the rise and life of the Elmira native from childhood until his untimely death.
