In a memorable scene from Remember the Titans (directed by Boaz Yakin [Buena Vista Pictures, 2000]), Julius Campbell and Gerry Bertier get into an argument after practice. Gerry demands that Julius start playing a more unselfish style of football. As the argument continues, Julius confronts Gerry’s leadership as the team’s captain.

Gerry realizes that great leaders lead by example.
