Stone Thrower: The Chuck Ealey Story

The powerful story of one man’s struggle to succeed as the first African American quarterback to win the Grey Cup.

This is the story of African-American quarterbacks getting an opportunity to play in Canada when NFL teams would not recognize their talents. At the centre is Chuck Ealey – the only U.S. College quarterback in history to go undefeated – who had to come to Canada to play. But we intersect stories featuring other incredibly gifted black athletes – all who followed a compass pointing true north, where they made a permanent imprint on the CFL and Canada.
