Rudy Ruettiger, one time Notre Dame football player, and the inspiration for the movie that bears his name, was in St. Marys on Tuesday.

Rudy brought his inspirational message of hard work, discipline, and dedication to members of the St. Marys football team.

Rudy fulfilled a life long dream by attending Notre Dame and walking on with the Fighting Irish football team.

Although he was nowhere on the team depth chart and never traveled with the team on road games, Rudy always gave maximum effort in practice.

He was rewarded for his loyalty and hard work by being put into the final game of his senior year at Notre Dame

These days Rudy is a motivational speaker, and today he met with the Blue Devils Football team at the Elks Club, before speaking with Pleasants County teachers and staff at the middle school in Belmont.
