Jon Bon Jovi's Son Hoping To Play Football At Notre Dame

Jon Bon Jovi's son, Jesse Bongiovi, says he plans to try out for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team as a walk-on next fall. Bongiovi is currently a senior at the elite Poly Prep school in Brooklyn, New York, where he has been a standout in both football and lacrosse.

Bongiovi was not offered a scholarship with the Irish, but says he has been set on dressing in the blue and gold since he first visited the school in eighth grade:

"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."

In the meantime, his dad is currently on the road for Bon Jovi's 30th anniversary tour.
