American Footballer Gives Most Inspirational Speech Ever

Next time Hollywood needs an action hero to come in, when the chips are down and all seems lost, to deliver an awe-inspiring motivational speech to rouse the troops to victory, they could do a lot worse than contact Apollos Hester.

He plays for the East View Patriots, an American high school football team in Texas, and was interviewed by a local news station following their narrow 42-41 victory over Vandegrift on Friday evening.

His enthusiasm and happiness from the win soon turns to full-blown life advice, motivational speaking and confidence-boosting; we're not sure we've ever seen such a passionate sportsman.

Watch below, and if it doesn't inspire you to go out there and conquer the world, then nothing will.
