Daly Talks Latest Visit

One 2012 Irish pledge who has looked to visit as many times as possible is Scott Daly. We spoke with Daly about his most recent trip to South Bend.

There is no mistaking the love Scott Daly and his family have for Notre Dame.

The Daly family is excited about their son's future at Notre Dame and has worked to make sure they visit campus as much as possible.

Did Scott make it to campus on Saturday when the Irish battled Boston College?

"I did," said Daly. "It was a great time as ND got the win and I had a great time talking with future recruits and future teammates. Overall it was a great day."

One of the sad parts of Saturday being the final home game of the season is Daly will not be on campus as much as he's been the past several months. However, he knows his official visit is only weeks away.

"It will be hard to get back on campus with the homes games over for the season," said Daly. "But I'll be back on campus December 9th for the football banquet as I'll be taking my official visit at that time. I'm looking forward to spending time with the players and to learn more about the life style at Notre Dame the next time I come."

Another thing Daly was saddened by was the end of his senior football season.

"We just finished up last weekend," said Daly. "We lost in the quarter finals against Bolingbrook High School. It was a really tough way to end the season, however, we had a great year and I had a great time with my teammates."

From the time Daly pledged to the Irish, he knew others would be keeping an eye on him. How did the future Irish long snapper handle the pressure?

"Being a Notre Dame pledge people always had their eye on you watching for you to mess up or they expect you to do a lot of great things," said Daly. "I think I handled the pressure very well as I stayed humble just as my parents always tell me and just try to be the person I always am.

How many games did Daly attend this season and is there any thought about enrolling early?

"I went to every single home game except for the Navy home game," said Daly. "Right now the plan is for me to report in the middle of June."
