Notre Dame's recent history isn't pretty.

From 2007-2010, they lose 36 consecutive games.

The last time they had a winning season was back in 2003.

That was also the last time they made the District 11 playoffs.

But this year, the Crusaders think they have the pieces to return to the postseason.

Notre Dame returns a lot of good athletes from last year's 4-6 team, including quarterback Kordell Theadford.

And those returning players have hopes high for 2013.
