The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will, once again, take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully, we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2021 season.
#68 Michael Carmody, OT
Michael Carmody is in his second season in the Fighting Irish program, having committed before the 2020 season. He hails from Mars, PA and is actually the brother of Notre Dame Men’s Basketball player Robby Carmody. He came to the Irish as a 4-star recruit, so someone very strong for the offensive line. Because of such a strong offensive line last season and the weird Covid season, Michael did not get any playing time. However, with his status now, he could look to make some waves on the O-Line as a tackle.
Restaurant That Fits
Michael Carmody is from just north of Pittsburgh. Primanti Bros. has the famous sandwich from there. With Carmody on the O-Line, he needs a bit more food, and what better way to represent that than putting fries on a sandwich.
As mentioned above, Carmody was a bit too young to look to get playing time last year. He jumped into the fold where 3 of the 5 starting O-Linemen last season got drafted to the NFL with one other player being picked up as an undrafted free agent. There was not much room to play on such a stacked line The Irish return one starter, so that means that many guys on the roster can compete for the playing time. Carmody is in the mix, and has been since spring practice started, too. We had Brian Kelly mentioning that Carmody was getting some reps at Tackle but also at Center. Carmody might start or at the very worst look for him to play at a position or two this season where the Irish will need guys to step into more roles with more of a rebuilding O-Line.
