In every sports movie, whether good or bad, there is at least one character that stands out. This character could have been the hero, protagonist, comedic relief or someone that had a small role and stole the show. For some sports movies their characters are what make it happen. A great character in a bad movie can still make the movie watchable.
Usually the most memorable characters come from movies based on real people or events. Miracle, Rudy, Raging Bull and Pride of the Yankees are all incredible movies about incredible people and events. I personally can't stand Notre Dame but still get goose bumps and a tear every time I watch the ending of Rudy.
Since movies are seen as a way to escape reality for a brief period of time, this list has been put together to celebrate the greatest fictional characters in all sports movies.
