Remember The Titans
written by Gregory Allen Howard
Coach Boone: Anybody know what this place is? This is Gettysburg. This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we're still fighting amongst ourselves.....today. This green field right here was painted red, bubbling with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies. Listen to their souls, man. 'I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family.' You listen and take a lesson from the dead. If we don't come together right now, on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed just like they were.
I don't care if you don't like each other, but you will respect each other. I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men.
Coach Boone: I'm not going to talk to you tonight about winning and losing. You're all winners because you didn't kill each other up at camp. Tonight we got Hayfield. Like all the other schools in this conference, they're all white. They don't have to worry about race. We do. But we're better for it, men. Let me tell you something -- you don't let anything, nothing come between us. Nothing tears us apart.
In Greek mythology the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power. Well, that football field out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans!
