Our Birth

Bythe time he graduated from Fort Lauderdales Central Catholic High School (now St. Thomas Aquinas High) in 1961, Brian Piccolo had distinguished himself in both baseball and football, which he also later played at Wake Forest University. (The Piccolo family moved to Fort Lauderdale when Brian was 12.) It was in football that he made his mark, however, going on to play for the Chicago Bears for four seasons before dying of cancer at age 26 in 1970. His story inspired the acclaimed 1971 made-for-TV movie Brians Song, with James Caan as Piccolo and Billy Dee Williams as his friend Gale Sayers.
