Bon Jovi’s Son Plans to Walk On With Notre Dame
Son of Jon Bon Jovi, Jesse Bongiovi, lacks a scholarship, but the 18-year-old plans to walk on at Notre Dame this off-season.
Bongiovi, a high school senior, has been a two-sport star at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, N.Y., playing both lacrosse and football.
Bongiovi says he first visited South Bend, Ind., home of the Fighting Irish, as an eighth grader. “I just fell in love with the place,” Bongiovi tells Irish Sports Daily. “The culture here, the people here, the opportunities here, they’re unreal. They’re second to none. Given the opportunity to walk on to the team and become a part of this family was an easy decision for me.”
Bongiovi is expected to graduate from Poly Prep this spring.
