Coach Dale: "We've been all over this before. Their top player is Boyle, number 15. He averages about 20 points a game. Buddy, you gotta stick right with him. No inside penetration. Shut down those passing lanes. And you gotta play tough off those boards -- negate their height advantage." Official: "Hickory, it's time to take the floor." Colin Butcher: "I'll get preacher." Coach Dale: "Okay. Well we're way past big speech time. I wanna thank you for the last few months. It's been very special for me. Anybody have anything they wanna say." Merle: "Yeah. Let's win this one for all the small schools that never had a chance to get here." Coach Dale: "Okay." Everett: "I wanna win for my dad." Buddy: "Let's win for coach. You got us here." Coach Dale: "Thank you." Reverend Doty: "With God of heaven, it is all one: To deliver with a great multitude, or a small company. For the victory of battle standeth not in the multitude of hosts, but strength cometh from heaven." Preacher Purl: "And David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it, and struck the Philistine on the head, and he fell to the ground." Doty and Purl: "Amen." Strap: "Amen." Coach Dale: "I love you guys." Coach and Players: "TEAM!"
This is the speech the pre-talk and the prayer that is heard before the Indiana Stat High School Championship game.
