Best Football Movie Speeches

9/20/06 in   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect

AOL Movies put together a list of the Top Football Speeches.

11. The Rock - "Gridiron Gang"
10. Goldie Hawn - "Wildcats"
9. Billy Dee Williams - "Brian's Song"
8. Gene Hackman - "The Replacements"
7. Jon Voight - "Varsity Blues"
6. Billy Bob Thornton - "Friday Night Lights"
5. James Caan - "The Program"
4. Charles S. Dutton - "Rudy"
3. Al Pacino - "Any Given Sunday"
2. Denzel Washington - "Remember the Titans"
1. Ronald Reagan - "Knute Rockne All American"

Tough list to pick my favorite ... I loved the intensity of Pacino, and it's hard not to be inspired by the Denzel speech ... but my #1 is Charles S. Dutton in Rudy. One of my favorite movies of all time. A little over the top with cheese, but it was hard not to watch that movie and not be motivated to pursue a far fetched dream of yours.

Yes, I did enjoy a movie about Notre Dame Football. We all get one mulligan, don't we ;)

I don't listen up too much but in Coach Carter movie there was a right message convey from the coach that Act like winners, play like winners and most importantly you will be the winners.

" I rode the bench for two years. Thought I wasn't being played because of my color, I got filled up with a lotta attitude. So I quit. Still not a week goes by I don't regret it. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of ya. You hear me clear enough?
You're 5 foot nothin', 100 and nothin', and you have barely a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in there with the best college football players in the land for 2 years. And you're gonna walk outta here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame. In this life, you don't have to prove nothin' to nobody but yourself. Am I making myself clear? "

Can't believe this movie was made 13 years ago.  F the calendar and it's continuous aging.
