'The other' Pass a pretty good get

Cardinal Authority is counting down the days until the University of Louisville football team starts the season on Sept. 5 against Auburn in the Chick-Fil-A Classic at the Georgia Dome. It's 50 days before the game and here's a look at 'the other' Pass - Jawon's brother Khane.

All the attention this week in the Pass family has been on Jawon. The four-star quarterback from Columbus, Ga., Carver High School picked the Cardinals over Alabama and Auburn on Thursday.

It was a big deal for the family and the Cardinals.

But Carver coach Joe Kegler said don't forget that Jawon isn't the first Pass to head to Louisville. He'll join his brother, Khane Pass, who is a freshman safety this season and a player Kegler said is "so much better than" many expect.

"Khane is one of the most special athletes I've ever seen," Kegler said.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Pass "will compete for some playing time," according to defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and his high school coach says that "doesn't surprise me at all."

"He's a great athlete and a great kid," Kegler said. "He was the only player that consistently went both ways for us. He is a Division I running back if he would have wanted to play running back. He's special."

The older Pass picked Louisville over scholarship offers from Clemson, Misssissippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State and others. He recorded 55 tackles, nine pass breakups and two interceptions as a junior and then had 36 tackles, two interceptions and nine more breakups as a senior. He was named All-City two years in a row.
