On the September 3rd, 2022 edition of Notre Dame Federal Credit Union's Irish Sports Saturdays, host Angelo Di Carlo chats with South Bend native Reilly Jeffers, a staff member at Ohio State as the Buckeyes get set to face Notre Dame in a top 5 matchup to open the season. Reilly grew up a diehard Notre Dame fan. His dad, after all, was Jeff Jeffers--the most recognizable TV reporter to ever cover the Irish. Jeff died a few years ago, so this game brings a lot of emotions considering how much this one would mean to Jeff. It certainly means a whole lot to Reilly and his family. The journey to this point for Reilly wasn't easy. Just before the start of his junior year of high school football, Reilly was in a serious car crash that cost him that football season. Two weeks later, his dad had a stroke. It was faith that got Reilly through those dark days. And those dark days is what gave him his first chance to learn about coaching. It's a powerful conversation about faith, family and football.
