"Blue" Stanton's jersey number was 76 in the
movie--in fact, his real number was 80. A visitor to our site actually
asked two of the T.C. Williams Titans from 1971 (Tom Lewis #55 and Jerry Buck
#64) and they confirmed this.
Gerry Bertier did actually play
in the final game (in the movie his car accident occurred before that), his
unfortunate car accident happened at a banquet dinner, after the final game.
At Gettysburg College, after
going for a run early in the morning, Coach Boone says that over 50,000
soldiers lost their lives in the Battle of Gettysburg. Actually, there were
51,000 "casualties" which includes killed, wounded and
missing/captured. An estimated 7500 died at the battle of Gettysburg.
Gerry wasn't actually kissed
Gerry's girlfriend wasn't
actually named Emma Hoyt.
