I’m very proud that I was named an honorary team member at their reunion this past fall.
These two videos are from the team members who were at their 45th Notre Dame Reunion a couple months ago.
George Goeddeke is the witty toastmaster at most of these gatherings. These two videos show George and his introduction of Ara, followed by Ara’s talk to the players.
I have a neat personal story with Goeddeke. My esteemed classmate Bill Wentworth arranged for George and me and classmate Keith Stark and ND All-Time Great Luther Bradley to go to a Detroit Tigers Baseball game a few years ago. We saw Justin Verlander throw his first no hitter. It was a wonderful day with four great Notre Dame men.
