About this Article
Braxston Cave is named after the fullback from Notre Dame's 1988 national championship team. He's a lifelong fan of the school, growing up not far from campus, and signed with the team after it posted a school-worst 3-9 record in 2007, convinced his class would help bring the storied program back to glory."We knew with the group we had that we could do something special," Cave said.
