“In 1965, a seventeen-year-old kid made the biggest decision of his life, one that affected his life forever—when he met Ara Parseghian and committed to Notre Dame. I was that kid and I can tell you that Mike Steele’s Miracle Moments captures the magic of this amazing university and its historic football team’s exploits.” —Terry Hanratty, All-American quarterback

The stories made me feel as if I were there at each moment throughout the years and gave me goosebumps.” —Drew Mahalic, former outside linebacker and former Executive Director of the Oregon Sports Authority
