This list answers the question, ‘Who are the greatest film jocks?’ Relive the greatest sports movies in film history with these athletes. 

Belved film jocks vary by stereotype. Hero, dumb, rude, violent, the guy who dates the cheerleader, and the goofball. Film drama jocks are typically either aggressive or the hero like Mox in “Varsity Blues” or Fred ‘The Ogre’ Palowakski from “Revenge of the Nerds”. In comedy films, the jock may be a hero like Troy Bolton in “High School Musical”, or comic relief like Adam Sandler in “The Waterboy”.

Regardless of whether these athletes play football, baseball, basketball, and race cars these jocks are the best at what they do. These great film jocks play high school, college, and professional sports. Jocks help win the big game and help movie-goers live out their teenage fantasies. Sports movies are a type of movie that film-goers love because they love movies about teenage athletes who become heroes.
