Remember The Titans

Remember The Titans,The majority of the Titan players in the film are based on real people. However, actor Ryan Gosling’s character Alan Bosley is not a real person. The movie shows Alan giving up his spot to Pete (Donald Faison) during a game. This scene was added to emphasize the selflessness of the players. Ray Budds (Burgess Jenkins) is also a fictionalized character. The film depicts a bigoted Ray being kicked off the team by captain Gerry Bertier.
“This never actually happened. Former Titan players have stated that this type of player would have been kicked off the team during training camp, before the season ever started.” -’71 Titans Website
Remember The Titans True Story is based on the true story of the explosive events that took place in Alexandria, Virginia in 1971 when African-American football coach Herman Boone was hired to guide an integrated but racially polarized high school team–the T.C. Williams Titans. Angry, stubborn and a rigid taskmaster, Boone faces a cool reception from the team’s players as well as an awkward relationship with assistant coach Bill Yoast, a local white man with seniority and a tradition of winning who was bypassed for the job.
It’s made clear that Bill has feelings of animosity for having to be an assistant under a black man. As the two men learn to overcome their ignorance and bigotry and realize that they have much in common–integrity, honor, and a strong work ethic–they work together to transfom a group of angry, unfocused players into a dynamic winning team of responsible young men. In the process, they also unite a divided community and ensure that Virginia will always “Remember the Titans.”
