May Orlando Rest in Peace. He left this world way too early in life. He sure gave this old man some pleasureable moments watching him play for the Irish. God Bless you Orlando. You will always be a "Notre Dame Man"

He was my favorite ND player. Not the greatest, but my favorite. I can always remember him surveying the crowd during warm ups, laughing smiling and interacting with the fans. Once the game started he always delivered. Thanks for the memories and God Bless.
