In Virginia, high school football is king. It is a way of life and in 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all black school with an all white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. In what was a potentially volatile situation with far reaching consequences, Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) was brought up from South Carolina and hired as head coach of the T C Williams High Titans over Bill Yoast (Will Patton), a coach with several years seniority and a steadfast following.
Hiring Boone as coach of The Titans was a very precarious situation. However, as he and Yoast learned to work together, they found they had much more than football in common. Both were men of integrity and honor, with a strong work ethic. Although from vastly different backgrounds, these two coaches not only molded a group of angry, unfocused boys into a dynamic, winning team, but helped to guide them into becoming responsible, caring young men. Their determination to work together and win was a triumph of the spirit and brought together a town torn by prejudice and intolerance; their love of the game initiated a lifelong friendship.
Although history might not remember the names of such heroes as Herman Boone and Bill Yoast, it is because of them that Virginia will always "Remember the Titans." Walt Disney Pictures presents, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Films, an inspirational motion picture, REMEMBER THE TITANS a Technical Black Production.
