The legendary Ernie Davis has signed this Syracuse University presentational football. Davis led Syracuse to their first, and only, national title in 1959, an undefeated season that ended with a resounding defeat of Darrell Royal and the Texas Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl Classic. Later in his collegiate career, Davis became the first African-American football player to claim the prestigious Heisman Trophy, defeating Ohio State standout Bob Ferguson in a close race in 1961. Davis was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in 1962, however Davis was felled by leukemia before he could play in a NFL game. Ernie Davis was 23 years old.
