Harry E Oliver, Jr
Birth: Jun. 5, 1960
Jefferson County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Aug. 8, 2007
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

Former Notre Dame "Fighting Irish" Football Player, he is best remembered for his Field Goal in the final seconds of the football game between Notre Dame and Michigan in 1980, when he kicked a 51-yard field goal to give the Fighting Irish a 29 - 27 win over Michigan. This not only won the game for the Fighting Irish team, but also secured a place for him in the record books and the hearts of football fans everywhere. Despite claims of the Michigan faithful of a strong wind at Oliver's back, His kick, one of the longest ever by a Notre Dame player, remains one of the top ten plays in Notre Dame's football history.
