Today is the 19-year anniversary of “Remember the Titans” getting released.

On September 23, 2000, audiences around the country got to see Denzel Washington as legendary football Coach Herman Boone as he led the TC Williams Titans to a state title amid massive racial issues in Virginia.

It’s been 19 years, and the film still has withstood the test of time without any issues at all.

Frankly, you’d have to be insane to not love “Remember the Titans.” I watch the film a couple times a year, and I regularly watch the speech about not giving up another yard.

It gives me chills every single time, and it has always me ready to run through a wall.

That’s far from the only incredible moment from the film. Who could ever forget Denzel Washington’s iconic speech as Boone about coming together on the grounds of where young men died during the Civil War?

I assume if you’re reading this article or most of the stuff I write, then you’re likely a fan of the historic football film.

If you haven’t already seen it, then you should probably stop whatever you’re doing right now to view it.

“Remember the Titans” will forever be remembered as one of the greatest football films ever made, and one of Denzel’s most impressive performances.

Well done to everybody who made it such a timeless classic.
