Inside the Irish Huddle: Stories from the Legendary Notre Dame Quarterbacks (Legendary Sports, in association with Pathways Productions). Blair Kiel ’84, Irish quarterback from 1980–83, wanted to make a quarterback skills video. After consulting with others, that idea changed to a project dedicated to the lore and history of Notre Dame football, with this DVD as the first result.

Exclusive interviews with the high-profile players highlight the 90-minute DVD, as they talk about their sideline conversations with their coach, the pressure they faced and the traditions they enjoyed. Participants include Johnny Lujack ’48, Bob Williams ’51, Paul Hornung ’57, Terry Hanratty ’69, Joe Theismann ’71, Tom Clements ’75, Joe Montana ’79, Tony Rice ’90, Rick Mirer ’93 and Ron Powlus ’98. Coaches Lou Holtz, Ara Parseghian and Charlie Weis ’78 also weigh in.

The DVD can be ordered by calling 800-336-9494 or at, the website of the Legendary Notre Dame Quarterbacks association. The site features analysis by a legendary quarterback on games during the season, as well as online chats, historical highlights, player biographies and merchandise.

A portion of the proceeds from the DVD and other merchandise will be distributed to charities chosen by the NDQB1 Foundation’s board of directors.
