ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Knute Rockne, Paul Hornung, Joe Montana, Tim Brown......Rudy Ruettiger? Yes Rudy Ruettiger! How does Rudy even belong in the same sentence as Notre Dame Football Legends? Not because he was one of the best to play football for the Irish. Not because he went on to NFL Greatness. Not even because he was the basis of one of the most inspirational sports movies of all-time. Rudy is a Notre Dame Football Great because of his story...and one great moment during his final Notre Dame home game.
Really, the plate on this Sports Gallery Exclusive Display says it all:
Despite being only 5’6” and 185 Pounds, Rudy dreamt of playing football for Notre Dame.
He was finally accepted to the school on his fourth try and eventually earned a place on the
scout team. On Rudy’s last opportunity to play for Notre Dame at home, Coach
Dan Devine put him into the game as a defensive replacement against Georgia Tech.
Rudy recorded a sack as time ran out and was carried off the field by his teammates,
one of only two players in Notre Dame history to be so honored.
An inspirational story of perseverance and determination, everyone LOVES Rudy! This display includes an autographed 8x10 photograph of Rudy being carried off the field by his teammates. Rudy also included the special (and funny) inscription "It took 27 years to play 27 seconds." Sports Gallery Quality Framed in wood moulding, UV-protective glass and ND matting, this beauty is not only a fantastic collectible but a wonderful inspiration. A great gift that is sure to get a big reaction. Go Rudy!!
