"I could shoot that down with my M16"

Coach Rollins, my high school.

We lived under an Air Base flight path, and he was a Vietnam Vet.  He also probably touched more lives than any other coach in the area.

Here are three from Bum Phillips:

"Coaching is not how much you know. It's how much you can get the players to do"

"How do you win? By getting average players to play good and good players to play great. That's how you win"

"Respect all. Fear none"

And a funny one...

"Because I couldn't go for three" -- Woody Hayes when asked why he went for two against Michigan when he was up 50-14.

Fight 'em until Hell freezes over, then fight 'em on the ice -- Dutch Meyer
