A resilient Irishman, Everett Golson plans to rejoin Notre Dame next spring


Everett Golson is determined to remain an Irishman.

Suspended in May for “poor academic judgment,” Everett Golson plans to rejoin Notre Dame next spring.

“I will be returning in the spring, that’s pretty much it,” Golson told television station WPDE in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where he was attending a charity basketball tournament.

“I’ve been working out, keeping my head up. I’ve had a little adversity but I’ve learned you can’t sit down and just take that, you got to pick yourself back up and keep going forward and continue doing what you were doing and everything is going to work itself out in the end.”

Chosen as the team’s starting signal-caller last summer, the 6-foot, 185 pound Golson initially looked terribly erratic in the pocket and clueless reading defensive formations at the line of scrimmage.

However, as the season progressed, the native South Carolinian matured and managed to complete 187 throws for 12 touchdowns, against six interceptions, for 2,405 yards.

Previously ranked 16th on Rivals.com dual-threat quarterback list, Golson additionally ran for 305 yards and five scores on the ground.

Removed from a remarkable 12-1 campaign in 2012, head coach Brian Kelly has publicly stated that he wants Golson to return as an Irishman.

With Golson temporarily blacklisted from South Bend, Kelly chose Tommy Rees as the starter over Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire.

Kelly, Rees and an overpowering defensive front seven will ensure Notre Dame continues to progress this autumn.

Following the 2013 season, it will be interesting to see if Everett Golson can “keep going forward” and prevent the precocious Malik Zaire from starring on the gridiron.
