CLEAR EYES. FULL HEARTS. CAN’T LOSE.
Son, everything I know about women you could fit in this coffee cup here.
Feed the dogs, spit the fire, lock up your daughters. Turn on the radio, sit down, and shut up ’cause it is game time, people!
Every man at some point in his life is going to lose a battle. He is going to fight and he is going to lose. But what makes him a man is at the midst of that battle he does not lose himself. This game is not over, this battle is not over.
All right, listen up. I’m supposed to give you some fatherly and wise advice at this time in your life. Listen up, if you’re wondering if a boy’s thinking about you, he’s not. He’s thinking about sex or he’s hungry, those are the only two options.
The big deal is it’s part of my job, to make sure that you don’t grow up stupid. It’s bad for the world.
But honey, when a door closes, God opens a window. He don’t never fumble the ball, baby. He always gets the touchdown.
Little boy: Does God love football?
Jason Street: I think everybody loves football.
We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and 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 that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

I’m a high school football coach, I don’t think there’s any better position to be able to judge the content of a young man’s character than that.
Listen, life is gonna throw a bunch of crap at you, but all you can do is just put it in the past and leave it there.
When’s the last time you enjoyed playing football? Were you worried about scholarships when you are 8 years old? You were playing because you loved the game, right? You gotta go back to that place where this game used to be fun, where it used to be a joy every single day to strap on those pads and put on that helmet.
There’s no weakness in forgiveness.
Tim Riggins: Texas forever, man. Still friends?
Jason Street: Yeah… Texas forever.
A few will never give up on you. When you go back out on the field, those are the people I want in your minds. Those are the people I want in your hearts.
Don’t quit on me. Don’t quit on yourself.
Right here, right now, God has placed you to do what you do best. Go all the way.
