Summary
The inspirational story of an ordinary man with an extraordinary amount of determination. Raised in Gary, Indiana, his only dream was to go to the University of Notre Dame. Though only 5'6" inches tall he earned nine letters in high school and graduated with honors. Rejected on three different attempts to get into ND, he finally gets in on a probationary basis. He walks onto the golf team, earns four letters and sets the course record of 64 that still stands. After achieving success in the corporate world, he revives a community college outreach program in Salem, Oregon and helps more than 600 businesses. Stricken with a fatal illness he dedicates his life to raising money to find a cure. No longer able to walk or talk, he keeps inspiring all by fighting to give so that a cure may be found. An inspiring story of commitment, passion, perseverance and a love of golf, family and Notre Dame.--publisher
