Steve Beuerlein talks Notre Dame past, present and future

Steve Beuerlein

Former Irish quarterback Steve Beuerlein addressed the Notre Dame Fantasy Camp during the opening night dinner and had an entertaining speech as he looked back fondly on his days at Notre Dame, talked about what he sees in the program, and told some great Lou Holtz stories.

I’ve taken part in the camp and it’s a wonderful few days for Irish fans looking to meet the coaches, players, and former greats that all assemble under the Golden Dome to give people an inside look at what goes into running the football program.

Beuerlein, who spent a long time in professional football after a four-year career that saw him set the interceptions record for Irish quarterbacks, but also beat USC four times, mixed a nice trip down memory lane with some insight on why he’s proud to be a Notre Dame graduate.

If you’ve got a spare 17 minutes, this is worth your time. (If only for the Lou Holtz impressions.)

    They should let Steve talk to their recruiting targets when they visit.

    I don’t know how many of the people leaving comments on these boards are ND alumnus, but I am not. I wish I would have had the opportunity (financially or academically) to attend Notre Dame so that I could experience exactly what Steve is talking about in this video. I know that I’ll never fully “get it,” but I can tell you that in 1999, at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with cancer. For my birthday that year, I was taken to the Notre Dame vs. Navy game. I had great seats on the 45 yard line, section 110, Row 1, and as I sat there waiting for the game to start, I cried like a baby.

    It is a special place…it truly is.
