TE Impressed By Irish

For tight end Ethan Wolf the chance to watch Notre Dame in a primetime match-up against Michigan was well worth the trip. IrishEyes.com spoke with the Minster, Ohio native about his game day experience.

Last Saturday, Minster (Ohio) tight end Ethan Wolf made the trip to South Bend to watch Notre Dame take on Michigan. For Wolfe the game day experience ended a long day.

"We went up to Notre Dame to watch the game and got there a little late because our game Friday was rescheduled for Saturday morning because of weather," explained Wolf. "So we got there around 6:00 and went down to the field to watch the team warm-up. We then went up to our seats to watch the game. The game was great and the atmosphere was great. After the game we visited the locker room and had a chance to talk with some of the players, which was just awesome."

While Irish tight ends may not have enjoyed a huge stat night, Wolf liked what he saw.

"I really like how they use their tight ends," said Wolf. "They played all three of them and we saw they at least played two tight ends on almost every play and on one play had all three of them in the game."

While Wolf visited the Irish campus this past summer, game day gave him a whole different feel.

"This was the first time I've ever been to Notre Dame for a game," said Wolf. "I got to see the campus when I attended their camp back in June. But the atmosphere definitely was impressive who everyone was all fired up for the game. Not just the student section, but you could see people may have been there since the night before if not earlier and you can see they have a lot of tradition."

While Wolf may not have spent a lot of time with any of the Irish coaches, they knew he was there.

"I spoke with (assistant) coach (Mike) Elston and coach (Scott) Booker after the game," said Wolf. "They just said hey as they were at the front of the door before leaving for meetings or a press conference."

IrishEyes.com will continue to follow any progress between Wolf and the Irish coaching staff in the coming months.
