Daniel 'Rudy' Ruettiger speaks at Fort Hays State University
10/23/2002

One of the most popular speakers in the United States, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, will share his life story Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Sheridan Hall's Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center on the campus of Fort Hays State University.

His 7 p.m. testimonial will be free and is open to the public. Ruettiger's life was portrayed in the classic gridiron movie "Rudy."

The film recounts his struggle in pursuing his lifelong dream of playing collegiate football for Notre Dame. His dream was finally obtained during the last 27 seconds of the last game of his senior year.

The University Activities Board is sponsoring Ruettiger's presentation.
