Fighting Irish Athletics | August 11, 2015
Like most elite programs, it's easy for Notre Dame to say its goal for the 2015 season is to hoist the national championship trophy come January 11 as the lone survivor of college football season.
The lone survivor tale that left the Irish awestruck on Monday afternoon will assuredly make whatever challenges the team will encounter en route to Glendale, Arizona pale in comparison.
Navy Cross recipient Marcus Luttrell, author of the New York Times bestseller Lone Survivor and inspiration for the movie of the same title, visited the team's practice and spoke to Notre Dame after lunch. While a muggy morning workout may have taxed some on Monday, they were quickly assured that nothing at Camp Culver is remotely as harrowing as what happened on a tour in Afghanistan.
