History Is Written By The Winners

I don't scratch my head unless it itches and I don't dance unless I hear some music. 
I will not be intimidated. 
That's just the way it is. 
[Coach Boones]

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. 
Let's go to work. 
[Coach Boone]

This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. 
Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we are still fighting among ourselves today. 
This green field right here, painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys. 
Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies. 
Listen to their souls, men. 
I killed my brother with malice in my heart. 
Hatred destroyed my family. 
You listen, and you 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 like each other or not, but you will respect each other. 
And maybe... I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men. 
[Coach Boone] 

Tonight we've got Hayfield. 
Like all the other schools in this conference, they're all white. 
They don't have to worry about race. We do. 
Let me tell you something: you don't let anyone 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, that's our universe. 
Let's rule it like titans. 
[Coach Boone]

You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a cat fight! 
You got anger, that's good you're gonna need it, 
you got aggression that's even better you're gonna need that, too. 
But any little two year old child can throw a fit! 
Football is about controlling that anger, harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection!
[Coach Boone]

I'm a winner. I'm going to win. 
[Coach Boone]

Sometimes life is hard for no reason at all. 
[Carol Boone]

People say that it can't work, black and white. 
Here, we make it work every day. 
We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans. 
[Older Sheryl]
