The Rockne Awards

The Rockne Awards recognize people who, in the 86 years since the Notre Dame coach’s death, have emulated his positive character traits, such as champion, courage, perseverance, loyalty and service – and to inspire others to do the same. Ryan was a guest of honor at the Knute Rockne Spirit of Sports Awards Celebration where he received the Knute Rockne Memorial society’s award for embodying the traits of a Champion.
