2019 Highlighted Speaker is Rudy Ruettiger, who against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, in twenty-seven seconds, carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame.
The son of an oil refinery worker and the third of 14 children, Rudy rose from valleys of discouragement and despair to the pinnacles of success. Today, he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States. It took years of fierce determination to overcome obstacles and criticisms, yet Rudy achieved his first dream - to attend Notre Dame and play football for the Fighting Irish. 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.
