BEST: 6. 'Rudy'
After high school, this runt-sized football player was supposed to watch his life rot away working in a steel mill, not playing football for Notre Dame. Want and heart, however, are things that can’t be measured. “You’re five foot nothin', a hundred and nothin', and you have barely a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in with the best college football team in the land for two years…in this life time you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody except yourself.”
