Rudy Ruettiger Booking Agent Details

Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger etched his name into the history books against all odds as one of most famous graduates of the University of Notre Dame. The third of 14 children and son of an oil refinery worker, Rudy rose from the valley of despair and discouragement to the pinnacle of success. After years of overcoming obstacles and criticisms, Rudy achieved his dream of attending the University of Notre Dame and playing football for the Fighting Irish. With fans cheering "RU-DY, RU-DY," he sacked a quarterback in the final 27 seconds of the only play in the lone game of his college football career. In 1993, his life story was immortalized by TRISTAR Productions with the film RUDY, which received "Two Thumbs Up" from Siskel and Ebert.

Rudy has appeared on many television and radio shows across the country, has been featured in national magazine publications and has been honored with a key to numerous cities across the United States. Rudy received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Our Lady of Holy Cross College, a proclamation from the Governor of Nevada, the Distinguished American Award, was inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame and spoke at the White House during the presidencies of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Today, Rudy continues to be a highly sought-after motivational speaker and inspires audiences with his powerful message of "YES I CAN".
