Motivational Public Speaker Daniel Rudy Ruettiger


When people say dreams don't come true, tell them about Rudy. Rudy Ruettiger grew up dreaming of playing football at the University of Notre Dame, but he lacked the grades and money to attend, and talent and physical size to play. However, those were no match for his perseverance and determination and Rudy was granted admission to Notre Dame where he convinced the football coach to give him spot on the practice team.

Today, Rudy shares his story with a unique, passionate, and heartfelt style of communicating to audiences around the world. He reaches school children, university students, and professional athletes with the same enthusiasm, portraying the human spirit that comes from his personal experiences of adversity and triumph.
