Happy Friday everyone! I have access to thousands and thousands of Notre Dame Fighting Irish photos, and will never use a small fraction of those on this site. The thing is though — I want to, and I’m going to give it a solid shot as a way to bless the beginning of the weekend throughout the offseason.
While talking about all of the new NIL stuff going on around college football, the question of which former players would have made a mint during their collegiate careers has come up quite often.
Perhaps the most mentioned name for the Irish is that of legendary speedster, Raghib Ismail. The Rocket has a special place in the hearts of many Notre Dame fans, and during his playing days he would have been as marketable as any player in the country. So let’s take another look at him.
The famous kneel
One of the things about Rocket that I remember most was him kneeling for that short prayer after a touchdown.
BONUS PICS... How did he get here? He separated very well.
I mean... just look at the glow on his face. The kid was amazing.
Is this a postcard? It looks like a postcard. I think it’s a postcard.

By land and by sea
That’s what a rocket does — SO LIFTOFF!
