Red Carpet Interview with Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton for Eddie the Eagle

Head Coach Sports was invited to screen the movie #EddieTheEagle and I thought it was a great movie about sports and persistence. It is a movie based on real events and a real person named Eddie Edwards (played by Taron Egerton). He followed his dreams to compete in the Olympics and did whatever he could to get there. He tried multiple sports and finally found a sport, ski jumping,  that he could get there with.

Eddie reminded me of a quote that I have on my office wall from Calvin Coolidge that states, "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

Even with Eddie's persistence however, he needed a mentor or a coach to help him qualify. The mentor/coach was a former ski jumper himself named Bronson Peary (played by Hugh Jackman).

Head Coach Sports was then invited to a premier event in Plano, TX to interview Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton on the red carpet. I wanted to know if they had any coaches or mentors that helped them or motivated them through their own adventures in life.

Below are the videos of those interviews but I have to warn you that I got a little star struck interviewing these two as this isn't a regular occurrence for me. For example, Taron Egerton almost asks my question for me. Also, when my wife talked to Hugh Jackman about his dad being his hero, I was supposed to mention that my father is also my hero and that he was my coach for many years but I dove right into the question instead. We loved meeting both of them and I would highly recommend #EddieTheEagle to sports fans, families, teams, hopeful Olympians, underdogs, and anyone else that could use some motivation.

Enjoy the interviews and go see #EddieTheEagle!
