The Express: The Ernie Davis Story

The Express poster

Witness the inspirational true story of a real American hero! Rising from the humblest of beginnings, Ernie Davis (Rob Brown) overcame impossible odds to become the first African-American to win college football’s greatest honor – the Heisman Trophy. Starring Dennis Quaid as the hard-nosed coach that helped drive him to greatness, The Express is a powerful story of triumph on and off the field that will have you cheering again and again for this Elmira native! ¬†(Film Rated TV-PG: parental guidance is recommended; these programs may be unsuitable for younger children.)
