BETHANY, OK (January 23, 2013) – Herman Boone, former coach of the T.C. Williams High school football team will be speaking for the Southern Nazarene Peer Learning Network on Thursday, February 7 from 12:15 p.m - 2:00 p.m. at The Petroleum Club in Downtown Oklahoma City.
Boone’s work in bringing together both the T.C. Williams High School football team and the town of Alexandria, Virginia has been immortalized in the Disney film Remember the Titans. Portrayed by Denzel Washington, the film follows Coach Boone as he takes the helm of the Titans football team and works to bring them and the town together through the racial tensions of early 70s.
“Millions of people have been inspired by the Walt Disney Movie "Remember the Titans". We are excited to hear from Coach Herman Boone who lived what was portrayed on screen. We anticipate Coach Boone sharing the story behind the movie and his keys to "Building and Sustaining Winning Teams,” said Brent LaVigne, Director of Advancement Programs.
