Ask James Onwualu for the single word that best describes his personality as a student and an athlete, and after a few seconds of reflection, the Notre Dame senior settles on "dependable."
Dedicated, unselfish, steady, driven would all work nicely too, but Onwualu's description of himself as dependable probably fits best, a quality he has demonstrated throughout his Irish football career.
"I just want to be thought of as somebody who would do anything that is asked of me to help the team," Onwualu said when pressed on how he defines dependable. "I don't worry about personal pursuits or personal goals, everything has to be team first. That's the only way to be successful as a group."
