In a tradition as old as the Golden Dome itself, the Notre Dame football team sends a message that transcends the gridiron: From Knute Rockne to Manti Teo, fans have often glimpsed how team members' experiences connect to their own personal values and to the character and mission of Our Lady's University.
Former Catholic school teacher Bill Gibbs is one example of how those connections extend to the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE).
Bill played football under legendary coach Lou Holtz as a member of the Notre Dame Class of 1997 and then taught at a Catholic high school through the ACE Service through Teaching initiative. Now, he continues a distinguished career in law with the Chicago firm of Corboy & Demetrio.
