August 14, 2019 5:02PM

Taye Diggs has played lawyers, detectives and doctors on television before but for The CW's hit show All American he plays Billy Baker, a high school football coach. Where did Taye go for inspiration for the role?

Many places including the great Denzel Washington who played Coach Herman Boone in the classic movie Remember The Titans. Could Coach Baker outcoach Coach Boone? We may never know for sure but we do know that we'll get to see plenty more of Taye Diggs on season two of All American.

You can catch the new season of All American returning October 7th on Chicago's new home for The CW, CW26.
