Based on the incredible true story, The Express follows the inspirational life of college football hero Ernie Davis, the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. Under the guidance of coach Ben Schwartzwalder, a hard-nosed coach with an obsession for winning a national, Davis overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to become an unstoppable running back for the Syracuse Orangemen. Following his draft by the NFL, tragedy struck the star athlete and he was never able to take the professional field. But his tale would forever change the face of professional sports.
