Nose guard Louis Nix III has become a bit of an Internet sensation during his time at Notre Dame. “Irish Chocolate,” as he is affectionately known, has amassed more than 6,400 Twitter followers. He has started his own YouTube series, Chocolate News, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the Fighting Irish football team away from the field.
This week, Nix is the subject of Fighting Irish Digital Media’s Student. Athlete. Irish. feature, which is certain to add to the junior’s growing legend.
Check out the video, as Nix talks about his love for Pixar flicks, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and lip-syncing like he’s Whitney Houston. In all seriousness, Big Lou is probably one of the most entertaining, genuine and enthusiastic people you will ever meet.
Check out the playlist below, which begins with the Nix video that was posted today. In addition, fourteen Student. Athlete. Irish. videos were produced last year, featuring a variety of student-athletes, from Robby Toma and Frenchy Silva to Will Hudgins and Melissa Henderson.
