First Forward Pass

Michael Rockne, Charles Dorais, and John Hildebrandt 71 at Cedar Point

Did you know that the forward pass was perfected right on the Cedar Point Beach by Notre Dame's Knute Rockne and Gus Dorais 100 years ago?

On Friday, family members - including Michael Rockne (left), great grandson of Knute Rockne, and Charles Dorais (right), great grandson of Gus Dorais - reenacted those very moments!

Cedar Point's General Manager, John Hildebrandt '71, joins them in this photo.

Note also that their jerseys, 'spelled out,' read 1913 - a throwback to that seminal year of the forward pass.
