Watch: Notre Dame OL Mike McGlinchey Receives Surprise Visit From Brother With Autism

Notre Dame's 50-33 win over Syracuse last weekend was a day Irish offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey will never forget.

Not so much for what happened on the field, but what happened after the game off of it. McGlinchey's 13-year-old brother Jimmy, who has autism, surprised him with a visit.

Because of his autism, Jimmy has a hard time attending his older brother's games, but he was determined to get to this one. He made the trip up from Philadelphia with his family to support his brother.

Bleacher Report has the visit chronicled, and this video is definitely worth your time. It is as heartwarming as you might expect.

Now that is awesome. What a moment for the entire McGlinchey family.
