“It’s nice for the family and friends that can’t make the trip all the way back to South Bend to come out here once a year — either to USC or here at Stanford. So, we’re happy to have them and even more excited to host Notre Dame Football player’s families that are coming in from all over the country,” said Book.
Rick and Kim Book are in all of Ian’s games, home or away. It seems funny for Rick to recalled the time when Ian wanted nothing to do with football.
“When he was seven or eight years old he was watching his older brother, who was bigger and tougher than him get tackled,” said Rick Book, Ian’s father. “He wanted nothing to do with it. We would play catch on the sidelines at his brother’s practice. And he had a significantly better arm than the older kids, so the coaches would come over and ask why he wasn’t playing. And he always said no, he didn’t want to.”
Around nine years old, he decided to give football a shot,” Rick said. “I told him he would be wearing a lot of pads and he’d be protected. We convinced him to give it a shot. Well in his first game, he got absolutely nailed. It was a blind hit and he was put in the dirt … grass all in his helmet. He gets up and looks right at me – not pleased.
“From then on through middle school and high school, he’s only ever played quarterback. They called him the young gun because of his arm.”
