Every Play Every Day

My Life as a Notre Dame Walk-on

by Timmy O’Neill ’02 (Expert Publishing)


As a student, O’Neill was 5-foot-6-inches tall and weighed 165 pounds. He was not recruited for the Notre Dame football team but decided to try his luck as a walk-on.

In detailing his five years as a walk-on, the former Notre Dame tailback addresses the joys, pain and emotion of following a dream. Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, CSC, president emeritus of Notre Dame, wrote the book’s foreword.
