Kids On Point presents RUDY RUETTIGER
November 2, 2018
College of Charleston TD Arena
7:00 - 8:30 PM
Against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger--in 27 seconds--carved his name into history books as perhaps one of the most famous graduates of the University of Notre Dame. The son of an oil refinery worker and the third of 14 children, Rudy rose from valleys of discouragement and despair to the pinnacles of success. Today, he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States.
It took years of fierce determination to overcome obstacles and criticisms, yet Rudy achieved his first dream - to attend Notre Dame and play football for the Fighting Irish. As fans cheered RU-DY, RU-DY, he sacked the quarterback in the last 27 seconds of the only play in the only game of his college football career. He is the only player in the school's history to be carried off the field on his teammates' shoulders.
In 1993, TRISTAR Productions immortalized his life story with the blockbuster film, RUDY. Written and produced by Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, the award-winning team who brought us HOOSIERS, the critically acclaimed RUDY continues to inspire millions worldwide.
Join Kids On Point on November 2nd to hear Rudy share his inspiring story at the 5th Annual Chucktown Talks.
