With all this signing day and recruiting talk going on, I felt the need to inform everyone why choosing Notre Dame is the ONLY decision.
Junior hurdler Andrew Helmin and junior wide receiver Corey Robinson started the charity One Shirt, One Body. The campaign came after Helmin’s roommate was planning to throw away all of his used issued gear and Helmin had the idea to bring it back to his younger brother and his friends. The joy these kids had after receiving the gear gave Andrew the idea for One Shirt, One Body.
The program started with just Notre Dame athletes donating their used gear to South Bend’s Center for the Homeless but has expanded with the help of Corey Robinson. Robinson talked with the ACC student-athlete advisory board and was able to get other ACC schools on board. With the ACC’s backing of One Shirt, One Body, the organization was displayed in the NCAA convention in January. The movement is now supported by the NCAA and many schools in each conference and it is still expanding.
Thanks to two kind and generous Notre Dame athletes, kids in the local communities of each of the One Shirt, One Body schools will have issued gear and the chance to interact with some of their favorite athletes and mentors.
