Happy Birthday Ray Zellars!

Birthday wishes go out to former Notre Dame running back Ray Zellars today.

Zellars spent from 1991-1994 in Notre Dame’s backfield, getting the vast majority of his playing time as a junior and senior.  He totaled 1,135 career rush yards and nine touchdowns at Notre Dame.

The most memorable of those nine scores came in his senior year against Purdue as his run is still talked about in certain circles.

Heck, one of our staffers here at Fighting Irish Wire called it his favorite Notre Dame play of all-time.  If you haven’t seen it before or would just like to watch it again (who wouldn’t?) then check out below.

The Pittsburgh product would go on to spend four years in the NFL, rushing for 11 career touchdowns between stops in New Orleans and Cincinnati.

Happy birthday Ray!
