Rockne Plaque at Notre Dame

I recently made a trip up to Notre Dame, IN with friends for a football game. One of my friend's father played football in the 60's at ND and he was very familiar with the campus as well as the story of Rockne, TX. I made sure to visit the Knute Rockne Memorial gym and especially the plaque in front of the gym which Rockne, TX had given ND explaining the naming of the town. It was very touching to travel across America and find a plaque honoring Rockne. It made me very proud. I just thought I'd share with you the photos I took of the plaque.
