Sam Hartman wins MVP for play in Aer Lingus Football Classic
Sam Hartman had a debut to remember with Notre Dame football on Saturday. Hartman’s play earned him some recognition in the form of a trophy.
Hartman threw for 251 yards passing with 4 touchdowns against Navy in Week 0. Hartman didn’t make very many mistakes as he completed 19-of-23 passes. He was named the MVP of the Aer Lingus Football Classic.

Notre Dame ended up beating Navy by a score of 42-3. The game was not much of a contest compared to how last season’s meeting went. The Midshipmen were down 35-13 at halftime. The Fighting Irish won 35-32, but were held scoreless as in the second half by Navy.
Hartman may put up some MVP-level numbers in Notre Dame’s next game as well. The Fighting Irish head back to South Bend to face Tennessee State on Sept. 2.
The Fighting Irish should be favored heavily in the matchup, especially since it will be a home game. Hartman will be hungry for some more trophies this season with Notre Dame.
