Print transcript

We may behind on the scoreboard at the end of the game, but you play like that we cannot be defeated.

Now we came here today to remember - six young men; 69 others, who will not be on the field with you today...but they will be watching.

You can bet your a$$ that they'll be gritting their teeth with every snap of that football - you understand me? How you play today - from this moment on - is how you...will be remembered.

This is your opportunity to rise from these ashes and grab glory.

JACK: We are -


JACK: We are -


JACK: We are -


Funerals end today.
