FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Notre Dame football goes full-bore into season No. 2 under head coach Brian Kelly following a 2010 campaing that the Irish won four of their last five games.

With tight-end Kyle Rudolph heading to the NFL and uncertainty on the future of wide receiver Michael Floyd, the passing game could be one for the taking for tight-end Tyler Eifert.

Eifert, a former Bishop Dwenger standout, looks for big numbers in his junior season. Eifert caught 27 passes for 352 yards and 2 touchdowns last year.

Eifert joined Tommy Schoegler and Scott Ziegler, AWP director of operations, to talk about the offseason work he and his Irish teammates have put in.
