After high school Daniel Eugene Ruettiger "Rudy" joined the U.S. Navy serving as a yeoman on a communications command ship for several years. When he finished his time with the Navy he decided to enroll at the University of Notre Dame. Although being undersized Rudy always had a dream to play football. Rudy tried out to be a walk on at Notre Dame, and made the team as a scout team player. After several years of handwork Rudy would see the field in a game for the first time, during his last game at Notre Dame, and record a Sack.

Rudy's story has been an inspiration for many and proves that years of hard work will payoff. The movie has become an all-time classic and is one movie that everyone must watch.
