NEW YORK—August 28, 2018—Morgan James’s new release, Rudy Ruettiger: The Walk On by Rudy Ruettiger and Nick Nanton, explores the real life of Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, the inspiration behind the iconic sports film, Rudy.
Rudy Ruettiger tells the story of Rudy Ruettiger who first overcame the odds by being accepted to the University of Notre Dame. Because he was dyslexic and got poor grades in school, he had to find another way. He continued to accomplish his dream by becoming a walk-on player for the University of Notre Dame football team, culminating in being able to dress for just one game and leading to an epic sack that has inspired generations of fans in the beloved sports movie. However, there was still so much of Rudy’s story to tell.
Emmy® award-winning director and producer, Nick Nanton presents Rudy Ruettiger using the full dialogue and cinematic images from the feature documentary film of the same title. He examines the Rudy story everyone knows and loves to provide further depth and detail about Rudy’s past struggles and triumphs at Notre Dame, as well as what it took to get that story onto film. Furthermore, Rudy Ruettiger elaborates on who Rudy has become and how he still serves as an inspiration today.
Rudy Ruettiger provides insider information on the actual story behind a favorite sports figure, and Rudy’s story serves as continued inspiration for readers. This tell-all has something special hidden amongst its pages for every reader.
