Appeared with: Scott Bakula, Sinbad
Most memorable words: "I don't feel so good. I think I swallowed a finger."
Bottom line: Evander Holyfield is part of an All-Star crew of convict football players brought in to toughen up the Texas State football team. Also, on that prison team is Earl Campbell, Jerry Rice, Dick Butkus, Herschel Walker and others.
As expected, the convicts dominate Texas State, and as they are boarding the bus to go back to the prison, the only non-football player on the team, Holyfield, utters the line of the movie.
"I don't feel so good. I think I swallowed a finger."
A few years later, Holyfield nearly had his ear swallowed during a fight with Mike Tyson.
