Believe in Victory

In 1962, at the end of his university career, Ernie Davis won the Heisman Trophy, a prize awarded to the best university football player of the year.

You’re gonna have to do better than that!

A true show of humbleness from Ernie who could have boasted about his successes, but instead prefers to give a lesson in life to Floyd. The scene is a good example of sponsoring.

Fear or courage?

The core theme is courage. The courage with which Ernie deals with the decisions of the coach, and the greater courage in facing racial hatred and the threats made by the spectators.

Beating the Best

The scene has different teaching uses. But I would like to use the example of the coach this time and his ability to nurture the responsibility of his boys.
