Irish football players give to the Logan Center, get back college credit

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Some Notre Dame football players are getting the opportunity to give back to the community and at the same time earn college credit for doing so.

Several returning scholarship players are wrapping up a two-week course run through the University of Notre Dame's Center for Social Concerns.

There are six camps set up in the Michiana area and we caught up with players who were busy working with clients at the Logan Center.

The two-week course has both a classroom component and a community component for the athletes.

"The Logan Center works with people with disabilities, to connect with each other," said Michael Hebbler, the Director of Student Leadership.

The one-credit course has existed for Notre Dame students for years.

However, three years ago, Coach Brian Kelly spearheaded that course to be condensed into an intense week for athletes who are in town over the summer.
