"I said, 'I don't want anything. I seriously don't want anything,'" Stumph says. "I have enough stuff."

Stumph says his unusual reaction came from a change within himself that happened during the two weeks he spent in Uganda.

The trip was initiated through both the Notre Dame Student Welfare and Development office and University classes taught by Dr. Clark Power and Professor Kristin Sheehan. The student-athletes who travelled to Uganda were required to take a pair of courses with Power and Sheehan in preparation.
