brinza.jpgFighting Irish Digital Media intern Josh Flynt ('11) continues to provide the inside scoop on the Notre Dame football program. This is the first in a new 'Freshman Friday' feature on Irish UNDerground. This week focuses on kicker Kyle Brindza ...

I decided to attend the University of Notre Dame because ...
I was born in Indiana and grew up as a Notre Dame fan. My grandpa is a graduate of the university. When I was looking at colleges, Coach Kelly really drew me here to Notre Dame.

The thing I have enjoyed most about Notre Dame ...
The team - we're so close. Coming from high school, I didn't think we would be that close, but we are a really tight-knit group. We have a lot of fun together outside of football.

Something interesting about me that people might not know about ...
I was born with a clubfoot and had to have surgery when I was born. I've had eight surgeries on my kicking foot. The most recent one was in sixth grade.

The thing I miss most about home is ...
My high school coach (Mike Sawchuk) and my team (Plymouth Wildcats). Coach Sawchuk has been a father figure to me.

Over my next four years at Notre Dame, I am most looking forward to ...
Winning a national championship. I am very confident we can win one with this coaching staff and group of players.
