Paul Walker

Varsity Blues

15 Jan, 1999

Walker plays Coyote quarterback Lance Harbor in the 1999 film Varsity Blues. It is a high grossing coming of age sports drama that follows a small town high school football team and their overbearing coach through a rocky football season. The team deals with various adolescent issues and pressures in a football obsessed town, where losing is not an option. Walker enjoyed the role and admits wanting to be the character.

Who hasn’t dreamt about being a star player in virtually every sport, you know?…Here I was, I had the opportunity to play in front of thousands upon thousands of screaming fans, and I was the quarterback on top of it, you know?
