Downers Grove South High School

Downers Grove, Ill.

Long snappers are rarely noticed until they make a mistake, but Scott Daly’s performance earned him the recognition of a Notre Dame scholarship.

Playing for the Irish has been Daly’s top goal from the beginning of the recruiting process, and he accepted a scholarship offer just seconds after Irish coach Brian Kelly offered it.

The Downers Grove, Ill., resident made the trip for five of Notre Dame’s six home games this fall and has made several visits to campus during the winter.

Daly’s consistency and work ethic at the position are unrivaled, and his quickness will be an asset in punt coverage.
