Notre Dame football is a program rich in history and tradition, and former Fighting Irish greats return to South Bend frequently to share their experiences with the current team.

Johnny Lujack, an ex-Notre Dame quarterback that won the Heisman Trophy in 1947, recently sat down with Irish QB Malik Zaire in what turned out to be an intriguing discussion. Zaire was on his way to having a fantastic 2015 season before breaking his ankle against Virginia in Week 2, and in 2016, he’ll battle with DeShone Kizer for the starting role.

Watch below as a former Heisman winner talks to a current Heisman hopeful:

Among the discussion topics: leadership, maintaining a sense of humor and what it's like to win the Heisman. Pretty cool to watch if you’re a Notre Dame fan.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
