    Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger

    Founder, Rudy International
    2727

    Against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger in twenty seven seconds, carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame. The son of an oil refinery worker and 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. Rudy has co-authored several books, including: RUDY'S INSIGHTS FOR WINNING IN LIFE, RUDY'S LESSONS FOR YOUNG CHAMPIONS and his new autobiography, Rudy My Story, released on 9/1/12. He established the RUDY FOUNDATION, whose mission is to help children of all ages around the world reach their full potential.
