In many ways, American sports embody the best in our national character: dedication, teamwork, honor and friendship. Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant embodied football. The winner of more games than any other coach in history, Bear Bryant was a true American hero. A hard but beloved taskmaster, he pushed ordinary people to perform extraordinary feats. Patriotic to the core, devoted to his players and inspired by a winning spirit that never quit, Bear Bryant gave his country the gift of a legend. In making the impossible seem easy, he lived what we all strive to be.
----- Former President Ronald Reagan, on Bryant’s death.
