Ara's All American coming to Jackson, Michigan


We are in for a great treat here in Jackson, Michigan.  On March 10th we are going to get a visit here in town from Mr. Gerry DiNardo.  Gerry is an All American football player that played for Ara Parseghian at Notre Dame and he has agreed to speak at the Catholic School fund raiser in Jackson, Michigan at St John's Middle School Gym.  Not only was Gerry an All American for Ara Parseghian at Notre Dame in the Mid Seventies, but, he was also the head football coach at Vanderbilt University, LSU and Indiana University in the Big Ten.  Now you may recognize him as the Big Ten analysis breaking down all the Big Ten games every week on the Big Ten Network.

I've know Gerry DiNardo from the fifth grade and I can't tell you enough the kind of driven spirit this man has to be successful and to do things the correct way.  Not only does Gerry want to win, but, he will only win with integrity and class.  The things that Ara Parseghian taught us over 35 years ago.  Gerry DiNardo is the kind of person who would have been the kind of coach that you would have wanted your son to play for.  He will kill himself trying to make the experience for the student/athlete one that he would remember for a life time.  His whole life was about developing character in his players and they loved playing for Gerry.  The thing that sets Gerry apart from many people and coaches is that he always try's to be morally correct.  He has a strong spiritual base as a man and always looking to make life easier for his follow man.  Gerry is a rare person that only comes along once every generation.  It will be our pleasure to hear Gerry speak and to grasp the words that so many people are searching for.  He doesn't have all the answers, but, he will put people on the right track.
