Notre Dame Finds a Player in a Most Unusual Place

From the far side of recruiting tales comes this story about Notre Dame's potential kicker this weekend. Gonzaga grad Dave Ruffer, a standout golfer in high school who did not play football, will be in uniform for the first time for the Irish and could be their kicker.

Ruffer attended William & Mary as a freshman last year and walked on to its football team but did not play in a game. Having been denied admission to Notre Dame as a high school senior, he reapplied and was accepted. He inquired about trying out for the football team but was told nothing would happen until the spring. Then the Irish had kicking issues. So Ruffer somehow went from playing intramural football to playing with the big boys.

Literally.

Read the story, it's a good one.

Missed his 1 and only chance on Sunday. Can't miss the PAT if you want to keep playing Mr. Ruffy
