The Little Gipper’s® Welcome to Notre Dame Football is a great way to learn about the University of Notre Dame and its world-famous football team! I began following Notre Dame football when I was seven years old and instantly became a huge and loyal fan. I was lucky enough to visit Notre Dame for a summer football camp when I was eight years old. I was so excited to be at Notre Dame that I stayed up until 2:00 a.m. that first night exploring the campus! I was just amazed at the shiny Golden Dome, the candlelight in the Grotto, the Basilica, the Hesburgh Library, and of course, Notre Dame Stadium (even in the dark!). In writing this book, I learned that Coach Lou Holtz once said this about Notre Dame: “If you’ve been there, no explanation is necessary. If you haven’t, none is adequate.” What I think this means is that Notre Dame is a very special place. It really is. Notre Dame truly inspires me and I wrote this book to help fans like me who want to learn more about the really cool traditions of this great University and its famous football team. I would love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Go Irish!
