Remember the Titans
written by Gregory Allen Howard

Coach Boone: Bunch of tough guys. You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a cat fight. You got anger? Thats good, you going to need it. Son, you got aggression? Thats even better. You going to need that to. But any little two year old child can throw a fit. Football is about controlling that anger. Harnissing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection. Some coaches cut a player if they think he's not up to snuff, when they think he's hurting the team. This is a public school program. I will never, ever cut a player who comes out to play for me, but when you put that uniform on, that titan uniform, you better come to work. We will be perfect in every aspect of the game. You drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a blocking assignment, you run a mile. You fumble the football and I will break my foot off in your john-brown hind parts, and then, you will run a mile. Perfection! . . . Let's go to work.
