Toronto, Ohio’s Robert Urich as Rocky Bleier

Beginning of “Fighting Back” starring Robert Urich as Rocky Bleier. Bob played football at Toronto High School and Florida State in hopes of an NFL career. His hopes were shattered when he was injured in the Gator Bowl. It is ironic he should star in a movie about Pittsburgh Steeler Rocky Bleier considering that Bob was a Cleveland Browns fan.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

    One of the football movies that made the men in my family cry! (Along with “Brian’s Song” & “Something for Joey”) Loved this movie on TV. Wish it was on DVD….maybe some day. Love Rocky Bleier!

    I’m replying from my other channel. I have a video of when Bob was inducted into our high school hall of fame. All I need to do is get it transferred to a DVD and I will post his introduction and speech here and on my other channel.
    A great guy. BTW Toronto, Ohio is 40 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh so Bob was close to home working on this film.

    Fighting Back should get a DVD realease. This year. It’s time. This is a great TV movie, and a great story. Plus you’ve got great performances by the late Robert Urich and Art Carney, and Bonnie Bedelia.

    This is WAY overdue for a DVD release.
