Facing the Giants Quotes

Alex Kendrick as Grant Taylor

  • (Alex Kendrick) "I want God to bless this team so much people will talk about what He did. But it means we gotta give Him our best in every area. And if we win, we praise Him. And if we lose, we praise Him. Either way we honor Him with our actions and our attitudes. So I'm askin' you -- What are you living for? I resolve to give God everything I've got, then I'll leave the results up to Him. I want to know if you'll join me."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "David, I need a 51-yard field goal."
  • (Bailey Cave) "Coach, I can't kick that far."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "David, they've been stopping the run and the pass all night. You're my best option."
  • (Bailey Cave) "Coach, the farthest I've ever kicked is a 39-yarder. There is no way I can kick a 51-yard field goal."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I believe you can. Your job is to do the best you can, and leave the rest up to God. I need you on that field. All right, field goal unit."
  • (Announcer #2) "I don't understand this, but with two seconds left on the clock, but Coach Grant Taylor and the Shiloh Eagles are putting the game in the hands of a 145-pound backup kicker. This isn't a good move on Grant Taylor's part. He even has to kick into the wind."
  • (Tracy Goode) "Grant, we gotta throw it. He can't kick it from there. It's too far."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "No, it's not."
  • (Tracy Goode) "What are you doing?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I'm preparing for rain."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Scripture says to honor your parents, and all you do is complain."
  • (Matt Prater) "All he does is boss me around. He doesn't even try to understand me."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Matt, you can't judge your father by his actions and then judge yourself by your intentions. It doesn't work that way. You're not responsible for him. You're responsible for you. You honor God by honoring your authority."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "With God, nothing is impossible."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Will someone tell me how we lost to Dewey County 21 to 7? 21 TO 7. Dewey County hasn't beaten Shiloh since you were in kindergarten. I don't know what you call that junk out there, but it sure wasn't football. Nine dropped passes, four fumbles, three interceptions. THEIR DEFENSE SCORED MOST OF THE POINTS. YOU GAVE THE GAME AWAY. You can't win football games if you don't play together as a team. You can't win games when you're more concerned about what you're doing afterwards. And you can't learn the plays when you miss practice cause you're sitting in detention. I'm sick of the apathy on this team. If we're not here to win football games, then WHY ARE WE HERE?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I'm a bit nervous. It's the championship. It's kind of surreal for me."
  • (Mark Richt) "Well, I can promise you. I don't care what level of ball you're coaching; it's surreal when you make it to the championship game. And Grant, I can just tell you: I'm so proud of you and what you've done. I've been reading about the team and where you've gone, and more than anything else I'm just proud of the fact that you finally learned to win the big one."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Well, we haven't played them yet."
  • (Mark Richt) "No, you won the big one when you accepted Christ. And now that you're teaching these guys and ministering to them, I think it's just fantastic."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I got it. These players got it."
  • (Mark Richt) "Well, I can promise you: win or loose this game, you guys are champions."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I appreciate that."
  • (Mark Richt) "But while you're here, you might as well win it, eh?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I will try my best. You know, this team we're playing: they're huge, they're fast, they're strong. I just don't want my players to be afraid."
  • (Mark Richt) "Well, in God's word He said 365 different times, "Do not fear." Now if He says it that many times, you know He's serious about it, don't ya?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Hey, where's my car?"
  • (Chris Willis) "Where'd you park it?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Right here."
  • (Chris Willis) "You sure? 'Cause ain't no way it got stolen. Man, you couldn't pay nobody to steal your car."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Did the boys do something with it?"
  • (Chris Willis) "Hey, I don't know -- hey, man, there's a note on this truck for you."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "What does it say?"
  • (Chris Willis) "It says, "Grant Taylor, the impact you've made on our school means more to us than you'll ever know. The Lord has used you to meet a need in our lives. Now we want to meet a need in yours. You'll find the title of this new truck in your name. Please accept it as our way of saying thank you.""
  • (Chris Willis) "Uh uh. Somebody done gave you a truck?"
  • (Chris Willis) "Man, this title got your name on it. You got to be kiddin' me. Grant Taylor. Somebody done gave you a new truck."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "This is my truck --"
  • (Chris Willis) "Is this because you the head coach? 'Cause I'm the assistant coach. You think I'd get a moped outta this or something."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Oh, Lord, You've given me a truck."
  • (Chris Willis) "Well, it's your truck -- drive it."
  • (Bill Butler) "Not a word."
  • (Matt Prater) "Yes, sir."
  • (Chris Willis) "That's right. No more jumper cables."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "We weren't supposed to have a winning season, but we do. We weren't supposed to advance to the playoffs, but we did. We're not supposed to be here, but we are."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Brooke, I can't provide you with a decent home, I can't provide you with a decent car, I'm a failing coach with a losing record. And I can't give you the children you want."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "God can do whatever He wants to do, however He wants to do it. And He chooses to work in our lives because He loves us. He's good. Hope today's a milestone for what He can do for the rest of your life if you trust Him."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Oh God, Oh God, I'm, I'm overwhelmed."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "You can't judge your father by his actions and yourself by your intentions. It just doesn't work that way."

Chris Willis as J.T. Hawkins Jr.

  • (Chris Willis) "So basically we got the toughest schedule we ever had. And less talent we ever had --"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I'm so sick of average seasons."
  • (Chris Willis) "You think I gotta get at least a moped outta this or something."
  • (Chris Willis) "You act like you gonna miss before you even kick the ball. See, we're gonna have to change your whole kicking philosophy. Now see, you kick it wide left, or wide right, but that ain't gonna get you home. The ball has got to go through the middle."
  • (Bailey Cave) "I know, coach."
  • (Chris Willis) "No, no, no. You don't. Now what does scripture say about this? Scripture says wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction. And many that be there find it. Now to us; that's wide left, and wide right. But narrow is the gate and straight is the way that leads to life, and few that be there find it. Anybody can kick it wide left and wide right. My momma can kick it wide left and wide right. But that ain't gonna get you home. It don't have to look great. It don't have to look smooth. It can look like a dying duck. But the ball has got to go through the middle. Now David, you gonna have to choose the narrow way. Cause that's the only path where you gonna get your reward."
  • (Chris Willis) "By the way, some man called lookin' for you today."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Who?"
  • (Chris Willis) "Stan Schultz."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Stan Schultz?"
  • (Chris Willis) "Yeah."
  • (Tracy Goode) "Stan Schultz; isn't that a cartoonist?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "That's Charles Schultz."
  • (Chris Willis) "No, I thought Charles Schultz was that man that flew across the ocean in "The Spirit of St. Andrews.""
  • (Alex Kendrick) "That's Charles Lindbergh, and it's "The Spirit of St. Louis.""
  • (Tracy Goode) "Naw, Lindbergh is a cheese."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Limburger's the cheese. Lindbergh's the man."
  • (Chris Willis) "No, Lindbergh was that blimp that blew up and killed all them people."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "That's the Hindenburg."
  • (Tracy Goode) "Nah, Hindenburg's where you go skiing in Tennessee."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "That's Gatlinburg."
  • (Chris Willis) "Gatlinburg? You mean like the country music group, the Gatlinburg Brothers?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Crazy."
  • (Chris Willis) "It don't have to look pretty, it don't have to look smooth. It can look like a dying duck as long as it goes through the goal."

Shannen Fields as Brooke Taylor

  • (Shannen Fields) "Grant, we gotta do something about the car. The only thing it does faithfully for us is break down."
  • (Shannen Fields) "Grant Taylor, I just want you to know that you've made a team."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "What team?"
  • (Shannen Fields) "The daddy team."
  • (Shannen Fields) "She said that I'm fine, my numbers were normal, and there was nothing that gave her concern."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "That's good."
  • (Shannen Fields) "It doesn't mean the problem is with you."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "What else could it mean?"
  • (Shannen Fields) "We may just have not given it enough time."
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Four years?"
  • (Shannen Fields) "You still hoping we'll have a baby?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "You know I am."
  • (Shannen Fields) "Me too. I catch myself thinking about it more and more. Don't you want to know if something is preventing it? Are you afraid of getting checked out?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "Yes."
  • (Shannen Fields) "Grant, I'm still clinging to a hope that one day we'll have children. I imagine them running in this house. I hear them playing in the backyard. Or running to our bed in a thunderstorm. And I think about reading them stories and teaching them songs. And I just keep thinking; how can I miss someone so much that I have never met?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I'll go."

Steve Williams as Larry Childers

Jason McLeod as Brock Kelley

  • (Jason McLeod) "You don't want us to win games?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "No. Not if that's our main goal. Winning football games is too small a thing to live for. And I love football as much as anybody. But even championship trophies will collect dust and one day be forgotten. It's just that so far this has all been about us; how we can look good, how we can get the glory. The more I read this book, the more I realize that life's not about us. We're not here to get glory, make money, and die. The Bible says that God put us here for Him. To honour Him. Jesus said that the most important thing you can do with your life is to love God with everything you are, to love others and yourself. So if we win every game and we miss that, we've done nothing. Football then means nothing. So I'm here to present you a new team philosophy. I think that football is just one of the tools we use to honor God."
  • (Jason McLeod) "So you think that God does care about football?"
  • (Alex Kendrick) "I think He cares about your faith. He cares about where your heart is. And if you can live your faith out on the football field then yes, God cares about football because He cares about you. He sent His son Jesus to die for us so we could live for Him. That's why we're here. But see, it's not just on the football field; we've got to honor Him in our relationships, our respect for authority, in the classroom, and when you're at home alone surfing the internet. I want God to bless this team so much that people talk about what He did. But it means we got to give Him our best in every area. If we win, we praise Him. And if we loose, we praise Him. Either way, we honour Him with our actions and our attitudes. So I'm asking you: what are you living for? I've resolved to give God everything I've got. Then I'll leave the results up to Him. I want to know if you'll join me?"
