Against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, in 27 seconds, carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame.

As fans cheered “RU-DY! RU-DY!” he sacked the quarterback in the last 27 seconds of the only play in the only game of his college football career. He is the only player in the school’s history to be carried off the field on his teammates’ shoulders.

In 1993, his life story was immortalized in the blockbuster film, “Rudy.” Written and produced by Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, the award-winning team behind “Hoosiers.”
