Chuck Connors & Sports

Everybody knows Chuck Connors for his role as Lucas McCain in "The Rifleman." He also did so many other things. He was good at no matter what he did! Besides The Rifleman what else have you enjoyed seeing Chuck in?

Chuck Connors & Sports

Post by cowgirl » Mon Jul 24, 2017 12:06 pm

We all know that Chuck loved his sports, especially baseball & basketball.

But did you know he is one of only 12 athletes in the history of American professional sports to have played both Major League Baseball and in the National Basketball Association.

He was drafted into American Football by the NFL's Chicago Bears, but never suited up for the team.

I often thought about how much he loved his sports and wondered why he didn't play football.

very interesting. he would have been good at football as well. he was talented in anyhing he took on. He could have had a long and great career in sports. I am glad he chose acting so we have his body of work to watch over and over. thanks for sharing this nice information
