Guest Book Highlights

October 28, 2017 "Our Dad took us to ND games when we young boys in grade school and high school in the 1960's. I will never forget seeing Ara with the team at the weekly pep rallies in the old track & field house. It was standing room only and so loud you could barely hear yourself talk. The players would be packed into the balcony behind Ara who would always deliver an emotional speech. Ara saved Notre Dame's football program and brought back the true Fighting Irish spirit. Ara, thanks for the great memories and all that you did for the University of Notre Dame. Robert Nall, Zionsville, IN." - Robert Nall (Zionsville, IN)

Brian Jude Loiacono " - Brian Loiacono (West Babylon, NY)

My Dad was the Director of the Student health center then, and the Parseghians were our neibors on the same road. We went to a Notte Dame game in 1964 and what a time we had at Southbend" - John Schumacher (GA)
