Rudy Perseveres After Facing Adversity By: Moira Danko
The Journey of How Rudy Got Into Notre Dame
The Cause of Rudy's Perseverance
Rudy was told his entire life that he couldn't get into Notre Dame. Even his family told him that he couldn't play football at Notre Dame. This caused Rudy to try even harder to get into Notre Dame and play football there. When Rudy applied to Notre Dame for the first time, he didn't get in. That effected him and hurt his feelings. He applied 2 more times, but didn't get in. He was greatly effected because he began to think that he wasn't good enough. But he never gave up on his dream and Rudy got into Notre Dame the last time he applied there. His hard work paid off and that caused him to finally be happy.
