Follow Me

The human characteristic which holds the greatest potential to change the world is the ability to encourage others.  And I absolutely love it when Hollywood uses its reach to do this.  One of the best recent scenes comes from  Peter Berg in “Friday Night Lights,” when Coach Taylor convinces his player Smash before his college football tryout.

You listen to me. You listen to me closer than you’ve ever listened to me before. You remember that Rutledge game? Fourth quarter. You came into that game. You took over that game, play by play. You owned that game.

I watched you that day and I said to myself, ‘that kid is going to go all the way.’ Right now, right here God has placed you to do what you do best.

Go all the way.

I’ll soak up this scene again before my next big audition.
