Darrell Brown, Frank Broyles And Integrating Arkansas Football

Here's today's must-read. Dan Wetzel shares the story of Darrell Brown, a former Arkansas Razorbacks walk-on who attempted to single-handedly integrate southern college football in the '60s. 

Spoiler alert, but the end is so great:

On Saturday, at halftime of the Hogs game against defending national champion Auburn, in front of a likely overflow crowd of about 74,000, Darrell Brown will be named the football Trailblazer. Forty-five years later, he'll walk out into the middle of Reynolds Razorback Stadium, a place he desperately sought as a player and later a protester.

"They're even going to escort me onto the field," he said.
