Agganis: The Golden Greek-Excellence to the End

Written and narrated by Boston sports journalist Clark Booth, this heartfelt documentary captures the essence of one of New England’s all-time sports heroes: Harry Agganis, a football, basketball, and baseball phenomenon at Lynn Classical High School. A multi-sport athlete long before Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders were born, the Golden Greek passed away at the age of 26. Weaving together dozens of interviews and personal stories, the film follows the arc of Agganis’s sports career,
first as the finest high school athlete to ever come out of New England, then as the quarterback of the Boston University football team, and, ultimately, as a star baseball player for his hometown Boston Red Sox.
