Watch: Behind the scenes of Manti Te’o’s return to Notre Dame

It had been a long time since Notre Dame legend Manti Te’o had stepped foot on the campus he called home from 2009 through early 2013.  Too long.

So long in fact that since Te’o was last on campus he’s now gotten both engaged and married as well as become a father.

We saw Te’o deliver a speech to the fans before the game against Cal last Saturday but thanks to the Notre Dame advanced media team we now have a look at how the rest of Te’o’s visit went, including a look at the message he delivered to the team.  Check it out:

I had two favorite parts of it:

  1. Manti yelling out from hundreds of feet away to watch for the quarterback sneak

  2. Finding out exactly where he met Jon Bon Jovi

It was awesome to see an all-time great back on campus and hopefully it won’t be long until he returns again.
