Legends for the library: Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger

Legends for the library: Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger will take place Tuesday, November 19 at 6:00 p.m. at the Knicely Conference Center on 2355 Nashville Road, Bowling Green.  Tickets are $75 each with dinner included.

The epic story of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger will forever be known as one of the greatest moments in sports history. The on-field moment lasted for twenty-seven seconds, but his legacy is complete as one of the most famous graduates of the historic University of Notre Dame. As fans cheered RU-DY, RU-DY, RU-DY, he sacked the quarterback in the twenty-seven seconds of the only play of his college football career! The stadium was electrified, and he was carried off the field on the shoulders of his teammates.

Today, he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States, entertaining audiences with a unique, passionate, heartfelt style of communicating. In addition to his motivational speaking, Rudy has co-authored several books, including: Rudy's Insights for Winning in Life, Rudy's Lessons for Young Champions, Rudy & Friends, The Rudy in You, and Rudy: My Story.
