You might not recognize the name Daniel Ruettiger, but surely you know about “Rudy.” Made famous by the 1993 movie of the same name, Rudy Ruettiger is the classic American underdog who never gave despite incredible odds. Just the fact that he stood 5’ 6” and weighed a scant 165 pounds would discourage just about anyone from playing college football, especially at storied Notre Dame. But Rudy had dreamed of playing for the Fighting Irish his entire life, and remarkably he lived out his dream and made the team. Although he saw little playing time, he was an important part of the practice squad and an inspiration to teammates and coaches. He finally did see some action in his last game as a senior in 1975, and after recording a sack his teammates carried him off the field, just like in the movie. Now Ruettiger is a popular motivational speaker and he has his own sports drink. Rudy and his wife live in Las Vegas.

Rudy Ruettiger Speaker
Perhaps the most famous Rudy Ruettiger speaker appearance was at Notre Dame Stadium during the 2005 season, when head coach Charlie Weis asked Rudy to emcee a pep rally when he could have easily chosen former stars Tim Brown or Joe Montana.
Rudy Ruettiger Appearance
The odds of a Rudy Ruettiger appearance ever occurring on the field at Notre Dame were probably a million to one when he first tried out, but he beat the odds and his story is still amazing to this day.
Rudy Ruettiger Endorsement
