Notre Dame Football may have found it’s next “Rudy,” or at least has found a super-donor Dad! Fox News is reporting that Jon Bon Jovi’s son, Jesse Bongiovi, has reportedly walked on to the Notre Dame football team as a cornerback.
The Asbury Park Press reports the freshman is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 183 pounds, and was a standout at Poly Prep High School in Brooklyn.
“Jesse has earned his spot on the (roster),” Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly told csnchicago.com. “He’s a tough kid.
“The kids really like him. They respect him. They don’t look at him as a rock star’s son. They look at him as a kid that loves Notre Dame and wants to play football and help this team.”
