"The Black Cyclone" features the little known story of personal strength that was embodied in Charles Follis. Picture Ohio in 1902, still in the shadow of the Civil War, and Civil Rights for Blacks was merely a volatile talking point. Small towns were fighting for identity and respect and enjoying prosperity for the first time. New ways to entertain oneself became popular---and many small towns began to field "Football Clubs" and compete with one another for bragging rights. "The Black Cyclone" captures the strength of one family, how they fought to make a home in white America---against a backdrop of what has become the NFL. The forgotten baseball and football legend, Charles Follis had no idea how he touched America forever... by impressing those he knew...and as The Black Cyclone will help Charles do what his great niece stated at the dedication of the Wooster High School Field in his honor.."Run, Charles, run for the ages..."
