Jon Bon Jovi's Son Earns Spot on Notre Dame Football Squad

Longtime New York Giants fan Jon Bon Jovi has a new football team to root for: Notre Dame.

The New Jersey rocker's son, Jesse Bongiovi, has earned a spot on the Notre Dame University team as a walk on.

“He’s a tough kid," Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly told "The kids really like him. They respect him. They don’t look at him as a rock star’s son. They look at him as a kid that loves Notre Dame and wants to play football and help this team."

Bongiovi, 18, is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 183 pounds. The freshman is a two-time letter winner in football at Poly Prep High School in Brooklyn, where he also lettered in lacrosse, according to his Notre Dame media page.
