Gale Sayers Booking Agent Details
Gale Sayers is a retired running back who played for the Chicago Bears from 1965-1971. He twice led the NFL in rushing, was a five-time first-team All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler. During his rookie campaign in 1965, Sayers amassed 2,272 total yards along with setting an all-time NFL rookie record with 22 scores in route to being recognized as the NFL Rookie of the Year. After a knee injury knocked Sayers out of the last five games in 1968, he came back strong the next season by leading the league in yards rushing and was named the 1969 NFL Comeback Player of the Year. In recognition of his efforts, Sayers was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 and was named to the NFL’s 50th, 75th and 100th Anniversary All-Time teams. Off the field, Sayers’ relationship with cancer stricken teammate Brian Piccolo was well chronicled, leading Sayers to author a book titled “I Am Third”, which inspired the movie “Brian’s Song”.

Prior to the NFL, Sayers played collegiately at the University of Kansas, where was a three-time All-Big Eight honoree and two-time consensus All-American. In total for his three seasons playing at KU, Sayers recorded 4,020 all-purpose yards, a conference record. The school retired his jersey #48 and he became a member of the College Football Hall of Fame in 1977. Sayers was born on May 30, 1943 in Wichita, Kansas and grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. After retiring from playing, Sayers was hired by Southern Illinois University as its athletics director, a position he held from 1976-1981. He would later go into private business, founding Sayers 40, Inc.
