The Intensity of Frank Leahy

While leading the Irish to four national championships, head coach Frank Leahy (’31) earned a reputation as a tireless worker. Leahy pushed himself so much, that in the 1953 contest against Georgia Tech, the Notre Dame head coach collapsed, and many feared he was dying. In this video, President Emeritus Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. and 1953 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Lattner (’54) look back on Leahy’s legendary, and sometimes dangerous, work ethic.
