2. A) How does coach communicate with the team to build better team dynamics?

In Remember the Titans, when leaving for camp, Coach Boone splits the team members up, black with white, and makes them share the bus ride and room with their new partner. Boone forces each player to learn about every other player of the different race. He breaks the tension amongst the team by taking his players on a three o’clock morning run to Gettysburg to teach them a lesson about what fighting amongst themselves will do. When they arrive at Gettysburg, Coach Boone asks the team,

“Anybody know what this place is? This is Gettysburg. This is where they fought the Battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fightin ' the same fight that we 're still fightin ' amongst ourselves today. This green field right here, painted red, bubblin ' with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pourin ' right through their bodies. Listen to their souls, men. I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family. You listen, you take a lesson from the dead. If we don 't come together right now on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed, just like they were. I don 't care if you like each other right now, but you will respect each other. And maybe - I don 't know, maybe we 'll learn to play this game like men...”
