Biography

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. It took years of fierce determination to overcome obstacles and criticisms, yet Rudy Ruettiger 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.

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 received "Two Thumbs Up" from Siskel and Ebert and continues to inspire millions worldwide.

A highly sought after motivational speaker, Rudy Ruettiger entertains international corporate audiences with a unique, passionate, and heartfelt style of communicating. He reaches school children, university students, and professional athletes with the same enthusiasm, portraying the human spirit that comes from his personal experiences of adversity and triumph. His captivating personality and powerful message of "Yes I Can" stays with his audiences long after they have returned to their daily routines. Rudy Ruettiger shares the speaking platform with great leaders and speakers including President George Bush, First Lady Barbara Bush, Peter Lowe, Joe Montana, General Colin Powell, Christopher Reeve, and Zig Ziglar. His opening remarks receive thunderous applause and standing ovations from audiences of 200 to 20,000 people who emotionally chant, "RU-DY, RU-DY!"

In addition to his motivational speaking, Rudy Ruettiger is noted in Who's Who and has received various honorary degrees in recognition of his accomplishments and commitment to changing lives. He has co-authored several books including Rudy's Lessons For Young Champions, Rudy & Friends, and Rudy's Insights for Winning in Life and has produced the Dream Power tape series.

Rudy Ruettiger established the Rudy Foundation, whose mission is to benefit children's advocacy programs.
