One of our recruits made this comment recently...
“It was good because all of the campuses begin to look alike and the football facilities look alike,” he said. “What really separates each program is definitely the coaching staff and the character of the football players. It was good to get to know some people you are going to be around.”
It has been my observation that the high-character kids bond very well with our players. It has been pointed out that when the great high school players are in the national All American games, the ND recruits hang out together, while the recruits from some of the top SEC programs and other football powers seem to go their own way. I’m told this is also true to a great extent in the NFL.
Over the years I have met a lot of outstanding Notre Dame Football Players. I am very proud to know them all.
