Thursday was Make Your Dream Come True Day, so Notre Dame decided it would make a few fans’ dreams come true. One such fan had it happen to him after his father tweeted the following:
Took my son to see 1st ND football & basketball games this year. Talks about Cormac Ryan all the time now. Just let him know he’s got a fan and to keep up the good work. Irish fan for life. pic.twitter.com/rJbJkjC2jF

And yes, his father expressed his gratitude in anticipation of his son’s day made:
Wow! Thank you! He’ll be so excited when he gets home from school. The extra effort is what makes Notre Dame so special. Thanks to Cormac for taking time to do this, continued success and health on and off the court. #GoIrish

Ryan probably wasn’t sure if we would make that much of an impression on somebody when he transferred to Notre Dame from Stanford, but that’s the case here. Hopefully before the season is over, these two will be able to meet in the flesh. Even if it doesn’t happen, this kid still will have this memory that will last him the rest of his life.
Ryan has started 10 of 15 games this season, though only one of those starts has come over the past six games. He is averaging 8.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists a game.
