Notre Dame Spotlights: Jamie Reidy '92, Author, Screenwriter
Jamie Reidy’s success as an author and screenwriter can be attributed - at least in part - to getting “pounded every day” as a freshman walk-on for the Notre Dame wrestling team.
“Considering that I was not a particularly talented wrestler, this was not the best decision for my health. Teammates even invented moves to keep their interest up while I flailed away,” the 1992 English major jokes.
“But I didn’t quit. I was determined to earn a varsity monogram by the time I graduated.”
That same perseverance helped Reidy push through rejections from more than 25 literary agents and realize his dream of becoming a writer.
