Bolin getting most out of setback

QB Kyle Bolin continues to focus on the positives that he can gain following his season-ending ACL injury. spoke with the 4-star prospect on Tuesday and has the latest from the future Cardinal.

Future University of Louisville quarterback Kyle Bolin suffered a season-ending injury when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a game against Boyle County in late September.

The four-star prospect from Lexington (Ky) Catholic remained positive after the injury and continues to do so following a successful surgery.

"I honestly believe that this happened to me for a reason," Bolin told Cardinal Authority on Tuesday. "I haven't had to overcome any obstacles in football really. It shows that anything can happen to you an any time in this game and you have to be mentally ready to overcome it."

Bolin began physical therapy almost immediately following surgery two weeks ago and is responding well.

"It's all been positive from both the doctor and the physical therapist," he explained. "My physical therapist actually told me that I'm a little ahead of schedule, but we are taking it slow, because there is no need to rush it."

"I see this as an opportunity to gain more knowledge about football and as a way to push me even harder to get me where I want to be."

Bolin will soon begin attending his team's practices on regular basis again and anticipates assisting as much as possible.

"I'll help out a lot," he said. "I'll work with our quarterback, Reese Ryan, to give him some tips and help him improve. I'll be more of a coach on the sidelines."

Bolin was among the visiting prospects for Louisville's overtime win over Cincinnati on Friday night.

"It was probably one of the best experiences that I have had there," he said. "The night game atmosphere, along with it being a rivalry game and the support the fans gave, it was an overall great experience."

Bolin anticipates scheduling his official visit in January.

Before the injury, he started six games, throwing for 1,556 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also rushing for an additional 187 yards and 4 scores. He threw for 7,038 passing yards and 63 touchdowns during his prep career.
