Top 10 Sports Movie Speeches from Hollywood Movies

A Sports Movie is never complete without a inspiring speech. Check out the Top 10 Sports Movie Speeches from Hollywood Movies in no particular order.

Al Pacino’s Inspirational Speech from Any Given Sunday. Had posted as Scene of the Week before. Link

Kurt Russell’s speech from Miracle. Had made a detailed comment on the movie here.

Matthew McConaughey’s speech from We Are Marshall.

Josh Lucas speech from Glory Road.

Denzel Washington’s speech from Remember the Titans.

This is more of a conversation than a speech but it so effectively captured the two different philosophies of the two champions. Daniel Brühl’s speech to Chris Hemsworth from Rush.

Speech from Rocky Balboa.

Scene between the Janitor and Rudy.

Brad Pitt’s Speech from Moneyball.

Samuel L. Jackson’s speech from Coach Carter.

      Ha Ha. You know I don’t follow watchmojo. watchmojo did not invent/patent these sports movie speeches thing. There are thousands of such posts on the net. Watch all the ones I posted and compare with the ones in that video and you will know which ones are better :smug:

      There are some which are common (Any Given Sunday which I already posted as SOTW and which is arguably the best, Miracle which is already very famous, We Are Marshall and Remember the Titans which I saw long time back) which you will find in almost every sports movie speeches post.

      There is one from Hoosiers which almost every other site has but I don’t like the scene and I did not like the movie either which is considered to be one of the best sports movie ever.

      Watch the rest of them too. Almost all of the movies are good too.

      Ha Ha. This post is for Sports Movie Speeches from Hollywood movies. Sattar Minute scene is very similar to the Miracle one and I liked the Miracle one more. I liked the country and not states scene in CDI more as it was at one stretch unlike Miracle.

          I did not like Rudy that much but you may like it. FS liked it a lot. I watched Remember the Titans long time back when it released on DVD and liked it back then.

    I wanted to make this post & then thought let me update it within the top ten sports movie & then thought to make a separate post just on inspiring speeches & thn got confused to include inspiring scenes as well or not but then there are so many movies, its hard to recall them so skipped 😛

    Good post & u should update with more such speeches

      Thanks. I will post some more speeches in comments and you can post some too which you like.

      I thought of including inspiring speeches which are not from sports movies but then decided against it.

    Scene between Janitor and Rudy – is not accessible from India.

    Watched all of them and loved Samuel Jackson and Denzel Washington scenes (maybe because I like them more as actors) and Daniel Brühl’s speech to Chris Hemsworth from Rush was very interesting.

      See if this plays in India.

        And this is the best of the scenes. I mean it.

        The way the coach approaches the player, the way he talks , their interaction …esp when the coach is mellow and speaking his heart out abt his past … its not dramatic in filmy way…

          He is not the coach. He is just the janitor but agree his speech was fanatastic.

        • Chaalu-Chaiwaala 9 years ago

          janitor ==
          a caretaker or doorkeeper of a building.
          (I had to google as I am a chaiwala 😉 )

          Thanks anyways. Fantastic scene!!

    “Edit comment” thing is not working properly – it asks “are you sure you want to do this – and then brings up whole post in the edit window and not the comment.

      hmm It is working fine for me both in Firefox and Chrome and I don’t even get that message “Are you sure you want to do this”.

      • Chaalu-Chaiwaala 9 years ago

        It happened then, not now.

        But, yes, thanks for checking..
