Terry Andrysiak

Terrence J. Andrysiak (born 1965) is a former American football quarterback for St. Francis Cabrini High School and the University of Notre Dame. He is currently a financial executive for Morgan Stanley in Flint, Michigan[1] and coaches 7th & 8th grade football for St. John Evangelist, Fenton, MI.

In high school, Andrysiak played baseball, basketball, and track and field, but he particularly excelled in football. During his senior season in 1983, he completed 95 of 153 passes for 1,859 yards, 21 touchdowns, and only three interceptions. He was named an Adidas Scholastic Prep All-American and a Sporting News Top 100 Football Recruit.[2]

As a sophomore at Notre Dame, Andrysiak won his first game as a starting quarterback while filling in for an injured Steve Beuerlein—a 37-14 victory over Mississippi.[3]

At the beginning of his senior year, Andrysiak was given the starting job by head coach Lou Holtz over future NFL player Kent Graham, and would win his first three starts, including a 26-7 victory at ninth-ranked Michigan and a 31-8 victory over seventeenth-ranked (and eventual Rose Bowl champions) Michigan State. His eleven-yard touchdown pass to Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown at Michigan is regarded as one of the most spectacular receptions ever made by the wide receiver.[4]

However, Andrysiak's season was truncated by a separated shoulder in a loss to Pittsburgh. He returned to start the final game of the season, a 35-10 loss to Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl Classic.[5] After graduation, he played for four years in the CFL with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Ottawa Rough Riders.

Andrysiak was inducted into Detroit's Catholic High School League Hall of Fame in 1988,[6] and the Allen Park Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.[2] He returned to his high school as the head football coach for three seasons and qualified for the state playoffs in 1995, his final year. He also coached one year at Niles High School, in Niles, Michigan, in 1996.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish football

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team is the intercollegiate football team representing the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana. The team is currently coached by Brian Kelly and plays its home games at the campus's Notre Dame Stadium, which has a capacity of 77,622. Notre Dame is one of six schools that competes as an Independent at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Football Bowl Subdivision level; however, they play five games a year against opponents from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), which Notre Dame is a member of in all other sports except ice hockey.Notre Dame is one of the most iconic and successful programs in college football. The school claims 11 national championships, but the NCAA recognizes the school with 13.

Moreover, Notre Dame has 21 national championships recognized by all major selectors; this is tied with Alabama for the most in the FBS. Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Ohio State share the record of seven Heisman Trophy winners, but Notre Dame leads Ohio State by the number of individual winners. Notre Dame has produced 101 consensus All-Americans, 34 unanimous All-Americans, 52 members of the College Football Hall of Fame, and 13 members of the NFL Hall of Fame, all NCAA records. Notre Dame has had 495 players selected in the NFL Draft, second only to USC.All Notre Dame home games have been televised by NBC since 1991, and Notre Dame is the only school to have such a contract. It was the only independent program to be part of the Bowl Championship Series coalition and its guaranteed payout, and it has one of the largest, most widespread fan bases in college football. These factors help make Notre Dame one of the most financially valuable football programs in the country, which allows the school to remain an independent.
