Everyone loves an underdog and one of the most well-known underdogs of all time is a man who now calls Henderson home in Daniel Ruettiger. If that name does not ring any bells, it might be because you know him better for his nickname, Rudy, which was also the name of the film based on his life. Rudy grew up with undiagnosed dyslexia, so he struggled in school. After high school, he joined the Navy for a little while. When he returned, the goal was to go to Notre Dame, but he did not have the grades, so he went to Holy Cross College for the first two years. On his fourth try, Notre Dame accepted him. Rudy’s dream was to play for the football team, but he was just 5’6” and 165 pounds. You get pushed around way too easily at that size.
Despite his size, Rudy managed to make the practice team thanks to his tireless effort. He did not get a single snap in a game until the final game of his senior season, where he played for just three plays, one of which was a kickoff. On the final play, he recorded an improbable sack. His teammates carried him off the field and into the history books. With Calculus tutoring in Henderson, you could create your own underdog story in math.
