To the Kiel family:
Your father, son, brother and uncle was one of the toughest players I ever covered at Notre Dame, and he was not always treated with the respect that he certainly earned. He and the Notre Dame team deserved so much better his senior year.
I will remember his pass to Tony Hunter that set up Harry Oliver's FG that beat Michigan, his coolness in engineering the upset of No. 1 Pittsburgh, the victory over Doug Flutie and Boston College at the Liberty Bowl.
Blair, you have certainly earned your place in Heaven with God, Jesus and Mary, our Mother, Notre Dame.
