Coach Norman Dale: I would hope you would support who we are. Not, who we are not. These six individuals have made a choice to work, a choice to sacrifice, to put themselves on the line 23 nights for the next 4 months, to represent you, this high school. That kind of commitment and effort deserves and demands your respect. This is your team.
Wilbur 'Shooter' Flatch: I know everything there is to know about the greatest game ever invented.
Merle Webb: Let's win this game for all the small schools that never had a chance to get here.
Wilbur 'Shooter' Flatch: Clete, you tell him. Sectionals of '33, one point down. Five, four, three, two, one, let 'er fly... in and out. Yeah, well, I was fouled.
Continuity mistake: In the first act, two of the seven Hoosiers leave the team after Hackman takes over as coach. Shortly after, one of the players reluctantly returns, bringing the total to six. The seventh member, "Buddy," is never shown returning, yet halfway through the film you start seeing him again in the games.
Trivia: Near the end of the film in the locker room prior to the championship game, Coach Dale makes reference to the players on the other team whose names are written on a chalkboard. If you look closely at the list of names, you'll see that they are the last names of the actors that portray the Hickory players (Poole, Schenk, Boyle, etc).jds122567
