Bishop McDevitt is proud to be hosting one of the first premier showing of the new documentary about Rudy Ruettiger from the University of Notre Dame on Saturday, April 21st, 2018 in Finestra Hall.
Here is the background on the movie:
RUDY RUETTIGER: THE WALK ON explores the real life of Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, the inspiration behind the iconic sports film, Rudy. Rudy Ruettiger overcame the odds by being accepted to the University of Notre Dame despite being dyslexic and getting poor grades in school; he found another way. He further persisted to accomplish his dream by becoming a walkon player for the football team, culminating in him being able to dress for just one game and leading to an epic sack that has inspired generations of fans in the beloved sports movie. However, there was still so much of Rudy’s story to tell.
This film examines the Rudy story we all know and love and provides further depth and detail to Rudy’s past struggles and triumphs at Notre Dame, as well as the path necessary to get that story onto film. Furthermore, it elaborates on who Rudy has become and how he still serves as an inspiration today. Whether you’re looking for insider information on the actual story behind your favorite sports figure, or you’re hoping to find some continued inspiration in Rudy’s story, this documentary has something special hidden inside for you.
