ND Alums Starting on Three Top Ranked Teams

How is this for a fun fact!

In the AP Preseason Poll you will find Notre Dame alums (Class of 2015) starting on three football teams ranked in the TOP 11 -- what other school can make that claim?
  • #7 ranked Oregon:  Matt Hegarty '15 (Center)
  • #10 ranked Florida State:  Everett Golson '15 (QB)
  • #11 ranked Notre Dame:  Joe Schmidt '15 (Linebacker), Nick Martin '15 (Center) and Amir Carlisle '15 (Wide Receiver)

Notre Dame Alum Named Oregon Ducks Starter

Former Notre Dame student-athlete Matt Hegarty '15 -- was named the starting center on the Oregon football team.

Hegarty -- a starter last year for the Fighting Irish -- was not expected to start this year for Notre Dame, so he left for Eugene seeking a starting role with the Ducks.

He joins Everett Golson as one of two Notre Dame alums -- beyond the alums playing for the Fighting Irish -- who've earned a starting role on a top-ten ranked team in the pre-season polls -- after their graduation this past May.

A great indication of the football talent in South Bend!
