He did live later on but unfortunately it was during segregation


His name was Jackie Robinson. Lettered at UCLA in Basketball, Football, Baseball, and Track. National champion in the long jump. Was headed for a pro football career when Pearl Harbor happened. Said baseball was his worst sport. Jim Brown right there too.
