This past weekend, the Notre Dame men’s soccer team posted wins over Oregon State and #4 Akron to win the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament.
The tournament began in 2002, in honor of the late Irish head coach, who passed away suddenly in January 2000. While leading Notre Dame from 1990-99, Berticelli posted a 104-80-19 record.
Before the 2012 tournament, Fighting Irish Digital Media caught up with Berticelli’s two sons, Anthony and Nino, a former player, Gerick Short, and a dear friend, Roberto Parisi, to talk about the impact he left.
Even having never met Berticelli, it’s near impossible to not be touched by the video.
