Father Hesburgh's impact was felt across campus from classrooms to the gym.
Of the hundreds of thousands of lives touched by Father Theodore Hesburgh, very few knew the man as well as Digger Phelps.
The former Notre Dame Basketball Coach had a profound respect for Hesburgh, often referring to him as a living saint.
Digger told WSBT 22 Friday he visited Hesburgh three times this week and was with him yesterday, when he said his final mass.
