"When people say dreams don't come true, tell them about Rudy." That's just what happened when a film appeared in 1993 telling the story of a boy named Rudy, an underdog and a dreamer who just never quit. Since his story became widespread, it has become a positive influence on so many teams and individuals.
We were lucky enough to be able to sit down with Rudy and hear his account of how his persistence in publicizing his story has helped underdogs to become winning teams, even when it comes to sports other than football.
