ND fan's wish to see game, granted


One man had a lifelong dream fulfilled at Saturday's Notre Dame game.

At the age of 88, Hank Schneider attended his first Irish football game.

Schneider is a veteran of the Air Force and he lost his wife earlier this year.

Six months ago he made a bucket list. On that list he put that he wanted to go to a Notre Dame game.

"I've been a Notre Dame fan for over 50 years. Naturally, you wanna go and see the game, so here I am," says Schneider.

Hank's home, Countryside Meadows, made this dream come true by bringing him to the game.

Once he arrived at the stadium Hank only had one word to describe how he was feeling, "Super, super, super, super, super," he said.

Hank has been collecting Notre Dame memorabilia for decades.
