10 November 1928, Notre Dame v Army, Yankee Stadium, NYC, New York, USA
The speech is immortalised in the film 'Knute Rockne - All American' which starred Ronald Reagan as George Gipp. As a politician, Reagan turned the phrase into a folksy catch-cry.
Well, boys ... I haven't a thing to say. Played a great game...all of you. Great game.
I guess we just can't expect to win ‘em all. I'm going to tell you something I've kept to myself for years -- None of you ever knew George Gipp. It was long before your time. But you know what a tradition he is at Notre Dame...
And the last thing he said to me -- "Rock," he said - "sometime, when the team is up against it -- and the breaks are beating the boys -- tell them to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper...
I don't know where I'll be then, Rock", he said - "but I'll know about it - and I'll be happy."
PLAYER # 12: Well, what are we waiting for?
With a single roar, the players throw off their blankets and rush through the doorway.
