The radio 470 AM. It is game day, people! And I have never felt this kind of electricity. This town of Dillon, Texas is on fire. As far as football, we got a game Friday. We got a lot work to do. We’re gonna play fast and we’re gonna take what we can get gentlemen. Do you understand me? Let’s show em’ what we’ve got. Yes, sir! This town is ready for it. Let’s play some football. And here we go folks… This is not just some game, you realise that? This is about tradition, it’s about keeping the spirit of this town alive. It’s football: it’s all we’ve got. In 10 years from now, good friends livin’ large in Texas. Texas forever. This town makes these kids into idols.
Texas isn’t even a state. It’d be nice to live somewhere that’s actually a part of this planet. If you give 100% of yourself tonight people are going to look at you differently. And I promise you you’re going look and think differently about yourself. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. Can’t lose! Blood, sweat and tears. It all stays right here, right now. This is ours baby! There is not a person in the world that could do this, except for you. This is what you do, I’ve seen you do it with my own eyes. I have faith in us. We can either win together or we can lose alone. I’m going all the way! All the way and nobody’s holding me back. Not you, not anybody. Oh this kid can move. Neither of us can be who we are without football. I had the best time of my life on this field. Your dad’s not able to see what I see. You always love football Matty. There are more important things than football. But there is nothing more important to me than you. All these people so caught up in their tiny little lives. I love it! I love it! You gonna steal a cripples girl, but you won’t fight a cripple! You’re a coward Riggins, always will be! You get your stuff and you get out of here right now, do you hear me?! GO! GO! You are not allowed to have sex! You’re 15 years old! I have walked with you all these years to create our dreams. This is not just about football. This is about pride. Not keeping it, but finding it. You just have to keep doin’ it over and over. Forget about the big guys charching at you… the fans, the chaos… forget it all. Just let it go. Two years ago I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. And now I find, I can’t stop wanting. I wanna fly somewhere in first class. I wanna travel to Europe on a business trip. I wanna get invited to the White House. I wanna learn about the world. I wanna surprise myself. I wanna be important I wanna be the best person I can be. I wanna define myself instead of having others define me. I wanna to win and have people be happy for me. I wanna lose and get over it. I wanna not be afraid of the unknown. I wanna grow up to be generous and big hearted the way people have been with me. I wanna interesting, surprising life. It’s not that I think I am going to get all these things. I just want to possibility of getting them. I can’t wait. We will all, at some point in our lives… fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts… that what we have is special. That it can be taken from us. And when it is taken from us, we will be tested. You’re gonna survive. Every man at some point in his life is gonna lose a battle. He’s gonna fight, and he’s gonna lose. But what makes him a man is that in the midst of that battle, he does not lose himself. This game is not over. This battle is not over. This is about all of us. Every single one of us. Together. I cannot believe. Come on, babe! Go, Panthers! Keep reaching, you keep going. I’m just figuring out my life right now. You lived up everyone around you. I’m starting to appreciate, I was shaped by my town. Good, then… make yourself at home. It’s endless. I got the best life. I got it all. Texas forever? Texas forever. Gentleman… There has been a lot of talk about expectations lately. Expectation of what we should be able to do, to win. People are expecting. I see us winning out there tonight. I have no trouble seeing that. That is not what Im expecting. I expect you boys to go out there and not take this team lightly, because I promise you. They’re gonna come at you with everything they’ve got. I expect you boys to execute. I expect you boys to play football. Clear eyes, full hearts… eh, we’ll deal with that later.
