I’ve given a few inspirational talks in my life in and around sporting activities. I’ve also heard many from other coaches and from movies, etc. But none is more emotionally charged than this scene from the movie We Are Marshall. It is virtually perfect; it says everything about team and effort and tradition and leaving your mark that I would ever want to say. Even after watching and listening more times than I can keep track of, it still gives me chills and makes me want to break out the shillelagh and go to work.
Happy Football Friday Night in America.
