Y'all, excuse me.

Anybody ever said no to you on that,

Principal Daniels?

Nobody still working here.

He scores!

- What can I do for you?

- I hear we had an incident yesterday.

Yes, ma'am, we did.

You taking care of it?

Let's just say today's practice won't be

the shortest one we've ever had.

Good. Good.

You know, Harold...

...that boy has been rolling by here

for a long time now...

...minding his own business.

Never caused any problem

for anybody.

I need you all to keep it that way.

I appreciate it.

No, I don't want the football.

I just want to tell you I'm sorry

about what happened.

I thought you needed to hear that

from someone.

I don't want the football.

You keep it.

Why don't you bring it by practice


I'll find you something to do.

Maybe you can help us out.

Nothing more is gonna happen, son.

I promise you.

See you later. All right?

All right, the nine of you.

You know who you are.

Get on down there.

Take your shoulder pads off.

Line up on the chalk.

Let's go. Hustle up!


...what do you want to do?

Run them.

How long?

Till I say stop.

On the line now!

Where you're going to be.


All the way to the line, coach.

Don't quit on me now!

Don't you quit on me!

All the way through that line!

All the way through!

- Hi.

- Hey.

- Long day?

- Yeah.

How was yours?


So the report is that Mary Helen

got off to a great start in lit class...

...but she's struggling with math.

- Well, the lit part sounds good.

Come on, Harold.

It's bad enough when a parent

misses a conference.

It's worse when the parent's

a teacher.

The parent's a teacher,

he knows how his kid's doing.


Please just tell me

that you forgot to go.

You know I had to deal

with those boys.
