Daniel Eugene ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger is best known as the inspiration for the movie, “Rudy”. You know his story…the undersized 5’6″, 165 lber who walked-on & persevered to earn a spot on the Notre Dame scout/practice squad. Then, in his final game as a senior achieved his dream of playing for the Fighting Irish when the coach put him in for 3 plays, where he recorded a sack on the final play. He was the first of only two players in Notre Dame history ever carried off the field by his teammates.
‘Rudy’ is now, among other endeavors, a successful motivational speaker. He’s agreed to take time out of his busy schedule to take some questions from SJ members. So, please use this thread to pose questions to him about his life, his time at Notre Dame, work, and/or interests. We will then collate the questions, get them to ‘Rudy’ and then post his answers along with some additional info that he wishes to share with the masses.
