Rudy Ruettiger documentary to be shown at Bishop McDevitt


The man behind the classic movie “Rudy” will be in Harrisburg this weekend to push another movie.

“Rudy Ruettiger: The Walk On” is the real-life story of the walk-on football player at Notre Dame.

Everyone told him he’d never get into Notre Dame or play on its football team, but he refused to listen, persevered and eventually got in for one play.

Hollywood made the inspirational film about him, but the documentary profiles what happened to him afterward.

McDevitt grad and Palmyra resident Bill Parker is the movie’s executive producer.

The film will be shown at Bishop McDevitt Saturday night at 7 and raise money for the school.

Rudy will be there.
