Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. The Friday Night Lights motto is one of the most memorable quotes in TV history, for both us and the actors. In fact, Connie Britton just said that she follows it every day — and we definitely should too.
On the fan-favorite Friday Night Lights Britton played Tami Taylor, wife to Eric Taylor. Coach Taylor repeated the mantra in the locker room before football games to inspire his players and remind them to play with heart. Those six words — “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” — quickly became bigger than the show. And we love that Britton still thinks of them daily.
Who does Mrs. Coach think exemplifies the quote the most?
Britton believes it lives in “regular” people, like the ones who “work hard every single day” and “defy the greatest odds” to make a better life for their friends and family. Whether it’s people across the world or your next door neighbors, there are people who are doing their best to live the best lives that they can.
Britton believes that “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” is for everyone, and we agree.
It’s important to remember that while there is a lot of bad going on in the world, there are a lot more people who are trying to do the best they can for themselves and their loved ones. That people are doing the best to live their truth and to help make the world a better place.
Tami Taylor would be proud.
