It’s a big football weekend coming up, what with the Conference Championships meeting up on the gridiron this Sunday. We’ll find out if it will be the Seahawks vs. the Patriots, or the Packers vs. the Colts (or the Packers vs the Patriots or the Seahawks vs the Colts) in the Superbowl.

Before you dive in the those upcoming contests, do yourself a favor and watch this little short that Kim Jeong put together for ESPN Films. It’s the true story of a walk-on kicker who left his home in Hawaii to attend the University of Notre Dame back in the late 1980’s.

If you’re a big fan of Notre Dame football, you probably know all about Reggie Ho. But if you’ve never heard of him, he’s like a cross between that other Notre Dame football legend that was brought to film, Rudy, and Field of Dreams stalwart Archibald “Moonlight” Graham.

Roll clip,

If that isn’t a Philippians 4:13 story, there never was one.

Hey rookie! You we’re (and still are) good.
