"Team, what team? Nah, what I'm going to do is...I'm gonna look out for myself and I'm gonna get mine." 'Attitude reflects leadership' is an idea reinforced in this clip. The captain does not making shared vision and team unity a priority.
Coach Boone wakes his team up early in the morning and drags them out to the cemetery where the Battle of Gettysburg was fought during the American Civil War. He gives an impassioned speech encouraging unity among his team and states that the players will experience the same fate as the soldiers of the battle if they don't work together and respect one another.
Before boarding the bus, Gerry approaches Coach Boone with conditions for playing on the team. Coach Boone responds by making it clear that he, not Gerry, is in charge of the team, and Gerry complies with his orders.
Coach Boone asks the players if they can share something about a fellow teammate. When the entire team gets quiet, he assigns them a new task: engage in coversation with each team member and get to know them on a personal level. He uses this as a means to break down racial barriers that prevent team unity.
