Former Notre Dame kicker Dave Reeve, who played on the 1977 Irish national championship team, is one of 11 who will be inducted July 12 into the Monroe (Ind.) County Sports Hall of Fame.

Reeve, a 1974 Parade All-American from Bloomington South High School, was the first kicker awarded a scholarship by former Irish coach Ara Parseghian. He kicked all four years for the Irish and graduated in 1978 as the school’s second all-time leading scorer with 247 points, still fifth on the Notre Dame scoring list.

Reeve’s 47-yard field goal started the scoring in Notre Dame’s 38-10 rout of No. 1 Texas in the 1977 Cotton Bowl. The convincing win vaulted the Irish to the top of the national polls.
