Classic High School Sports Movies

There are many high school sports movies.  Probably one of the most classic one is ‘Remember The Titans.’  Based on a true story the new school coach who is African-American has to deal with a popular white coach.  This is pretty tough for the coach (played by Denzel Washington) given that the football team’s first season as a racially integrated unit. Ultimately the coach tries to win the kids’ respect through discipline and hard work.  The movie teaches that lessons can be learned both in and out of the classroom.
