Herman Boone to Speak at OTC Commencement

Written by  Monday, 31 March 2014 13:13

Herman Boone, the football coach who inspired the movie Remember the Titans, will speak at the 2014 graduation ceremony on Thursday, May 15th at 7pm at Hanner Field House.  


Racial tensions rose at T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, when three schools were merged to form an integrated one. Boone, who beat out successful coach Bill Yoast of an all-white high school, had to endure various forms of racial intolerance. At the same time, he and Yoast had to mold the minds of a group of impressionable young men. In, 1971, he led the T.C. Williams Titans to an undefeated season and a state championship. The team has been to 30 state championships since, and the year was chronicled in the film starring Denzel Washington.
