My Top 10 Favorite SPORTS Films of All Time

So, I was sitting on my ass and watching T.V., wondering what I could possibly post about next. Then I saw that ABC Family was playing Remember The Titans, and I realized what I should post about. Everyone who knows me knows that not only am I an actor, but I am also a huge sports fan. So it's only logical that I am a really big fan of sports movies.

Here is my list of the top 10 best sports movies that I have seen:


Rocky is the story of a leg breaker and underground boxer from Philadelphia who is picked by the World Heavyweight Champion boxer Apollo Creed to challenge him for the heavyweight crown. This is a chance for Rocky to prove to his friends, the world, and himself that he is somebody. Much to Apollo's surprise, Rocky went toe-to-toe with the heavyweight champion and went the distance.


Rudy tells the true story of how a man named Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger who defied the odds and lived out his dream to play for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Everyone told him his whole life that he was never going to amount to anything, but after his friend dies in a freak explosion, Rudy decides he is going to pursue his dream of getting on the Notre Dame football team. It is a story about fighting against the odds to achieve your dreams and about never giving up through adversity.


Remember the Titans tells the true story about a High School football team in Virginia who becomes the first high school football team in the area to have a multiracial team. New head coach, Coach Boone, who is African American, through adversity and a lot of hard work within the team and the community, he is able to bring his team to win the state championship.


Miracle is the true story of the "Miracle on Ice" USA hockey team who was able to take down the dominant Soviet Union hockey team in the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. Everyone knows the story of this team and their miraculous victory over the Soviets, and Kurt Russell is able to play head coach Herb Brooks flawlessly.


Friday Night Lights is based off the best-selling book about the true story of the Permian Panthers, the best high school football team in the state of Texas. The movie is about the rise and fall of that great team, and the tragedies of being a high school star and having all of that fame taken away from you because of one injury.


This movie is AWESOME! I don't care how juvenile this makes me sound, but Space Jam is a piece of movie genius. I don't need to explain this movie, because everyone should know what this film is about already. If you haven't seen this movie, you need to! What else is better than Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan?


The Natural is a movie about an old time baseball player, Roy Hobbs, who was shot out of jealousy before he even becomes a star. When he gives it another shot many years later, he becomes a star on a terrible professional team. It is well acted by Robert Redford as the lead.


The Program is a movie that shows what the life of college football is all about. It is about the pressures of popularity in the football world, and about how if you are good enough, you don't have to worry about going to class in college, because you will be in the NFL soon enough. It teaches a good lesson about college sports and the price of fame.


Angels in the Outfield is a movie about a foster child who only wants to be with his father again, and his father says that the only way that they will be together is if the Angels win the pennant. The Angels are the worst team in Major League Baseball. So, the boy prays to God for the Angels to win. He had no idea that God would intervene this much, when he actually sends Angels down to help the California Angels win the pennant. I have loved this movie since I was a kid.


Ya. This movie needs no explanation. It's just hilarious!

Let me know what you think, either by facebook, twitter, or google+ (yes, i have a google+).
