Mike McGlinchey and Aaron Banks spent just one season together at Notre Dame. McGlinchey was a senior, getting ready to head to the NFL. Banks was a freshman. However, the two kept in contact.

Hufanga's family comes from humble beginnings, so making it to the NFL means a lot. "It's just a blessing. My family has been through a lot," he continued.

How I can better our lifestyle as well. That's what drives me." Scot McCloughan
