Daniel Ruettiger is an American motivational speaker with a net worth of $500 thousand. A former player of Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, Ruettiger also gained his net worth through telling his life story (as a Notre Dame player) which was made into a 1990?s blockbuster, Rudy. After numerous attempts, Ruettiger became a student at Notre Dame in the mid seventies, in hope of joining the football team. Despite being too short (he was 5ft6), Ruettiger was placed on the scout team. He was eventually put in a game as a defensive end. He quickly gained credibility when he sacked a quarterback in the only game he played. He was carried off the field by teammates, making him the only player (in the school history) to be carried off the field. Almost twenty years later, the blockbuster Rudy (1993) was made about his time as a Notre Dame Football player. After the Notre Dame years, Ruettiger became a motivational speaker, giving talks to school-age children, University students as well as professional athletes. He's also co-written several books including Rudy's Insight for Winning in Life and Ruby &Friends. Ruettiger set up The Rudy Foundation, a non-for-profit organisation which helps develop programs that has a positive impact on children's lives. The Ruby Award was created under the organisation which recognises children's achievements.
Daniel Eugene "Rudy" Ruettiger (born August 23, 1948) is a motivational speaker and former collegiate football player for the University of Notre Dame, who is best known as the inspiration for the motion picture Rudy.
Daniel Ruettiger (nicknamed "Rudy") had a hard time in school because he was dyslexic. He was the third of fourteen children. He attended Joliet Catholic High School, where he played for locally famous coach Gordie Gillespie. Ruettiger joined the United States Navy after high school, serving as a yeoman on a communications command ship for two years; then he worked in a power plant for two years. He applied to Notre Dame, but due to his marginal grades he had to do his early college work at nearby Holy Cross College.
After two years at Holy Cross, Ruettiger was accepted as a student at Notre Dame on his fourth try, in the fall of 1974. It was during his time studying at Holy Cross that Ruettiger discovered he had dyslexia.
Ruettiger harbored a dream to play for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, despite being merely 5'6" and 165 poundsa??an undersized player. Head coach Ara Parseghian encouraged walk-on players from the student body. For example, Notre Dame's 1969 starting center, Mike Oriard, was a walk-on who was eventually nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship and an NFL contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.
After working as hard as possible and showing that he was willing to work as much as he needed to, Ruettiger earned a place on the Notre Dame scout team, a practice squad that helps the varsity team practice for games. Merv Johnson was the coach who was instrumental in keeping Rudy on as a scout-team player.
After Parseghian stepped down after the 1974 season, Dan Devine was named head coach. In Ruettiger's last opportunity to play for Notre Dame at home, Devine put him into a game as defensive end against Georgia Tech on November 8, 1975. In the movie Rudy, Devine is given a somewhat antagonistic role, not wanting Rudy to
