Notre Dame continues to churn out great players - often All-Americans - at the tight end position. Sophomore Troy Niklas spent the past season in the shadows of Tyler Eifert, but learned a lot from the senior.

He spoke with News-Sentinel Sports Editor Tom Davis about his desire to be the next great Fighting Irish tight end among other topics at the 2012 BCS National Championship Game Media Day at Sun Life Stadium.
