We lost a legend this week, as Coach Herman Boone has reportedly passed away at the age of 84 after battling cancer. Boone was famously portrayed by Denzel Washington in the classic movie Remember The Titans, which saw a young, Black coach bring Black and White T.C. Williams High School football players together to lead them to victory.

On Wednesday, the Virginia high school tweeted the news, writing in a post “It is with great sadness that we share the sad news of the passing of former Head Football Coach Herman Boone who lead the Titans to the State Championship in 1971.”
