JOHN AMOS' BRILLIANT SPORTING CAREER
Those who think that veteran actor John Amos has done little else but acting in his life would be mistaken.
Amos may have become famous as an actor, but first, he was a pro sportsman, with a promising career in boxing and football.
He played for the Denver Broncos, but a sports injury curtailed his career and in 1967 he turned his focus on acting. In 1970 he won his first major TV role, and his path was set for success.
