My Life as a Notre Dame Walk-On

"Every Play Every Day" is more about not accepting other people's expectations for your life than it is about football. The experiences chronicled in this book truly do apply to everyone. The journey of a young man or young woman into adulthood is always a fascinating experience, and this book is no exception. It is the story of boy who decided at a young age to follow the path to Notre Dame, Indiana. The qualities of Timmy O'Neill mirror the community of the University. Students come together from around the world to participate in enriching their lives and choose Notre Dame to be a part of it. Notre Dame will forever follow this man throughout the journey of his life; just as so many have followed their dreams to the school beside the lakes, under the glow of the Golden Dome."

~Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.
President Emeritus
University of Notre Dame

"As a college and professional football player, I've learned that nobody is ever going to hand you the life you imagined; you have to go out and fight for it. That's the message conveyed in Timmy's story. Timmy's dream was to play football at Notre Dame, but no matter what your dream is, "Every Play Every Day" will inspire you to get there."

~Tim Brown, 1987 Heisman Trophy winner, NFL Nine-time Pro Bowl wide receiver


"It's hard enough to play college football as a scholarship player. It takes a rare individual to succeed at Notre Dame as a walk-on. Timmy O'Neill succeeded doing this. You will enjoy his journey."
