While there's a ton of excitement over the returning veterans on the Notre Dame football defense, there's at least one freshman who is hoping to make a splash in the 2024 season. Teddy Rezac is also someone who clearly has a realistic view of how he might make that splash in his true freshman season.

Rezac, a player Notre Dame was able to steal away from his home-state Nebraska Cornhuskers, is eyeing playing any way he can in the coming campaign. He knows that he's going to have to show Al Golden and the rest of the defensive coaches that he's willing to do anything to get on the field.

"My goals are really just to help the team in any way possible,” Rezac recently explained Athlon Sports. "I want to get on special teams and see the field that way. Just learning the defense as best as possible is huge for me as well.”

Rezac is also quite excited to just get to campus. Freshmen who couldn't be in South Bend during the spring are set to move in on June 9. That means that the Nebraskan will be pretty far from home, but he's looking forward to meeting his new teammates and starting to get ready for a season he thinks will be quite successful.

"I’m really excited,” said Rezac. “I’m good friends with a couple of the other 2024 recruits, and I think everyone is pretty excited to be on the field together." 

His excitement has been palpable since he first committed to the Notre Dame football program. That excitement even convinced his brother Anthony to walk on.

It's all fun and games getting to campus, but Teddy Rezac knows what the end goal for Notre Dame football is this season. 

"I think the expectations for everyone is to make the playoffs every year, and in the near future win the whole thing."
