Oh, those boys.

Can't you make room

for your daughter and those boys?

Don't lecture me. I'll go see Ms. Marks

tomorrow if it'll make you feel better.

Make me feel better?

This is not about me.

She's a junior, Harold.

I mean, she's got this year

and next.

And then she's gone.


- Y'all ready?

- Yes, sir!

Yes, sir!

Close your eyes for a minute.

I want you to listen.

You hear that?

lmagine what that'll sound like

after we've all done our job tonight.

And then...

...I want you to imagine what

that's gonna feel like.

I want you to picture your man

right across from you.

You see him?

You make the effort on every play,

you'll beat them.

You play smart,

you're gonna outthink them.

You play with heart and character...

...and give your teammates everything

you've got on every play... can walk off the field calling

yourselves a football team.

Let's play with Hanna pride and never

stop believing in each other.

You win your battles...

...we'll win our war.

What's say let's have some fun

and get it done.

Your Hanna Yellow Jackets!

Let's go, Jackets!

The kickoff is high and deep...

... and sends the Jackets' Johnny Clay

back near the goal line.

Johnny Clay behind a convoy of Hanna

blockers. Heads up the right sideline.

Go! Go! Go! Go!

Get up there!

Finally knocked out-of-bounds

at the 42-yard line.

Throw right 63 flag. Come on.

Come on!

First and 10 for the Jackets.

Marcum back to pass.

Finds Hawkins in the right flat

for another Jacket first down.

Get over here. Come on. Come on.

Thirty-six crossbuck.

Once you get the ball, I don't wanna

see nothing but the back of your jersey.

All right. Get out there.

The handoff is to Clay.

Finds a big hole. Now cuts outside.

Beats one tackler. And another.

- Get upfield, son. Turn it on!
