It all began with a problem and a simple solution: The Texas high school football All-Stars had three black players and in segregation plagued 1965, only two could room with one another. Then one young white man stepped forward. Bill Bradley (not to be confused with the basketball player) and Jerry LeVias became not only roommates, but close friends, and their close camaraderie became the prelude to an interracial partnership that helped forever changed Lone Star sports.
