Where Have You Gone? Derrick Mayes, Ken MacAfee, Nick Eddy, Jerome Heavens, and Other Fighting Irish Greats
Since the fighting Irish first took to the field in 1887, Notre Dame has developed an incomparable level of tradition and achievement—both on the gridiron and in the classroom. With a record ninety-six All-American players and seven Heisman Trophy winners, it’s no wonder several of Notre Dame’s stars have gone on not only to star in the NFL, but also to successful careers and accolades in all walks of life.
Notre Dame: Where Have You Gone? catches up with Fighting Irish players—from All-Americans and a former head coach to a few guys who barely made it off the bench, but reached their greatest achievement after leaving football. Fans will read how quarterback Tom Krug became Dick Vitale’s grandson, receiver Joey Getherall came to join the Los Angeles police department, and running back Nick Eddy is now teaching special education. These and countless other stories capture the flavor and spirit that is Notre Dame football.
