Tony D'Amato

Sure he was crusty, and probably too old-school for his own good, but there was a charm in Coach Tony D’Amato’s love of Football’s past, and the way he clung to tradition.

We should also note that this was the comeback role for Hopper, who would star in many more films after. Generally, we would not think of Assistant Coaches for our Hall of Fame, but if any one…
