Now in its third printing, see what it took to become the shortest player in Notre Dame football history to carry the ball in a game. Every Play Every Day takes you on the intimate journey of former Notre Dame tailback Timmy O'Neill, who, at 5' 6" and 165 lbs, wasn't the prototypical Division I college football player. Experience the journey from the dorm room to the classroom, from the locker room to the training room, and everywhere in between. Read about the incredible experience of being a college football walk-on; the joy, the pain, and the raw emotion characterizing the inner fight athletes deal with on a daily basis. This book details the lessons learned through O'Neill's five years as a Notre Dame walk-on, and shows what can happen to anyone who refuses to accept the limitations imposed by others.

"As a college and professional football player, I've learned that nobody is ever going to hand you the life you imagined, you have to out and fight for it. That's the message conveyed in Timmy's story. Timmy's dream was to play football for Notre Dame, but not matter what you dream is, Every Play Every Day will inspire you to get there."
--Tim Brown, 1987 Heisman Trophy winner, NFL 9-time Pro Bowl wide receiver

"It's hard enough to play college football as a scholarship player. It takes a rare individual to succeed at Notre Dame as a walk-on. Timmy O'Neill succeeded doing this. You will enjoy his journey."
--Lou Holtz, Only college football coach to lead six different programs to bowl games and the only coach to guide four different programs to the final top 20 rankings

"Every Play Every Day is filled with Timmy's passion for life and his desire to share what he's learned with others. His language is plain and his message is clear. Timmy understands that hard work and a positive attitude are vital to success in life."
--Sean Astin, Star of Rudy and Lord of the Rings

"Every Play Every Day is more about not accepting other people's expectations for your life than it is about football. The experiences chronicled in this book truly to apply to everyone."
--Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame.
