SOUTH BEND — Former Notre Dame quarterback and 1964 Heisman Trophy winner John Huarte and his wife, Eileen, have provided a $1 million gift to the university to establish an endowment for grants-in-aid to student-athletes, the university announced Saturday.

The contribution brings the couple’s support of athletics scholarships to $1.5 million. 

 A native of Anaheim, California, Huarte grew up listening to Notre Dame games on the radio as he worked at his father's citrus farm. He enrolled at Notre Dame in 1961. During his senior year, under head coach Ara Parseghian, he led the Irish to a 9-1 record.
