Trivia:
The name 'Jesse' comes from Jesse Owens' first two initials JC ( James Cleveland)

The daughters of Jesse Owens gave their full support to the production. They were contacted by the filmmakers and given a script for their approval and even traveled to France to meet the screenwriters personally. Afterwards, they said the script was "heartwarming." They were frequently on set and gave Stephan James detailed insight about what kind of man their father was, to which he credited as helping him build up the kind of person he was going to portray

Jason Sudeikis took inspiration from Gene Hackman from Hoosiers and Kevin Costner from Bill Durham to build the personality of Larry Snyder as very little historical information about the real life coach is available

In the scene where the track team is listening to the Joe Louis match on the radio, one of the men is drinking Erin Brew. Erin Brew was a beer brewed by the Standard Brewing Company, a Cleveland Brewery that existed from 1904 to 1961
