Episode 76 – Hile Rutledge and Hoosiers

In 1986, the film Hoosiers was released and told the story of a small high school in Indiana where the boys basketball team defies the odds with a new coach to make a run at the state title. It’s the classic David & Goliath story and it’s loosely based on a real high school in the mid-1950s.

Hile and I use the movie to talk about how the coach led this small team (it only had 7 players) against state powerhouses, a town that wanted the coach to be fired and a star player who opted not to play after the previous coach passed away. We talk about admitting mistakes, resilience, compassion and listening to the team.
