NATHAN HENDRIX

JASON HENDRIX

Co-Host/Co-Founder – Nathan Hendrix – A 16-year-old football player at Notre Dame High School, Nathan didn’t have much choice but to be a Notre Dame Fanatic.  Nathan is an aspiring sports journalist, so Dos Leprechauns is a perfect platform to gain real-world experience in his career choice at a young age. 

President/Founder/Lead Host – Jason Hendrix – 30+ year ND fanatic. Jason is as passionate about ND athletics as anyone you will ever meet. Jason founded Dos Leprechauns media due to his passion for Notre Dame and all it stands for, as well as his son’s desire to be a sports journalist. Jason played high school football and is also a Fantasy Football Camp alumni (2019). 

The bi-weekly podcast is a unique and essential experience for every Notre Dame fan. Co-hosts Jason and Nathan Hendrix have created a platform that brings together former and current players as well as opinions from analysts and writers. Guests have included Marc Edwards (NFL Super Bowl Champion, ND Fullback), Gerome Sapp (6 year NFL career, ND Safety), Rick Mirer (historical ND Quarterback).Listeners participate in contests, call-ins and giveaways and can all engage with the hosts at local events. Special projects have spun off from the podcast like the Marathon Run Club with participants from across the country.

Dos Leprechauns has established itself within a niche following of Notre Dame football fans, who are loyal and passionate about the team. Jason and Nathan have formed a close connection with their audience of engaged listeners.
The father and son team have gained supporter trust over the years and will continue to do so in upcoming seasons. Dos Leprechauns strongly believes in helping others and has raised funds for multiple people in need in the local
community.
