Speech of the Month
On November 14, 1970, a tragedy in collegiate athletics occurred in West Virginia. A chartered jet crashed near the intended airport in Kenova, WV with no survivors. Passengers on-board included the Marshall University's football team, coaches, staff, and townspeople. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the crash.
Here we see a scene from We Are Marshall in which Coach Jack Lengyel, played by Matthew McConaughey, seeks to inspire the Young Thundering Herd. Notice how he puts language in context.
