The best walk-on story in Notre Dame Football lore keeps getting better. Senior kicker David Ruffer has earned a scholarship for his stellar play.
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly confirmed the news Friday.
Ruffer first entered the scene in 2009, making all five field goals he attempted. He earned the starting role in 2010, and as his perfect streak continued, he drew national attention, as well as obvious comparisions to the Hollywood film, "Rudy".
Ruffer's first carrer field goal miss came in the Sun Bowl. He's 23-24 in his career.
