The President Emeritus of Notre Dame, Father Theodore Hesburgh, was among those honoring Lou Holtz as the coach's statue was unveiled Saturday.
Also speaking at the dedication ceremony was his best player ever, 1987 Heisman winner, Tim Brown. Then more of Lou's former players did the unveiling.
The statue depicts Lou getting ready to send a player onto the field. The sculpture is very authentic, right down to the manila folder in the back right pocket.
"You're going to have setbacks, you're going to have disappointments," Lou said to the crowd. "But you've got two choices when you're down: stay down or pick yourself up. This is a wonderful opportunity. I hope they'll look and say, 'You know, if that dumb sucker can do it, so can I.'"
The statue is located inside the stadium, just to the south of Ara Parseghian's statue, at the national champion coaches gate.
