Fort Scott (Kan.) running back Harry Trotter visited for Cardinals spring game

Fort Scott (Kan.) College running back Harry Trotter will be visited by U of L this week

Fort Scott (Kan.) College running back Harry Trotter made the trip east to visit Louisville for the Cardinals spring game on Saturday and left quite impressed.

"Man, I loved the trip," he told Cardinal Authority.  "The facilities are all top notch and I had a great time."

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound running back is a product of Maur Hill in Atchison, Kan., where he rushed for 1,656 yards and 20 touchdowns on 157 carries as a senior.  Last fall, as a freshman at Fort Scott he 502 yards and eight touchdowns in six games.

While his name might conjure up a few nicknames due to its similarity to the fictional wizard Harry Potter, Trotter hopes his to do his magic on the field, possibly for the Cardinals this fall.

"They said that they've had the injury bug at running back this spring, so maybe that will open an opportunity for a JUCO RB," he said.  "They looked kind of thin at RB and I think I could be the perfect fit to come in this fall for them already having college football experience."

U of L head coach Bobby Petrino spoke with Fort Scott Kale Pick on Monday and a Cardinals assistant will visit the school later this week.

"Coach Petrino called our head coach yesterday and coach (Cort) Dennison is coming to see us this Thursday to talk to us so I'm just hoping that they will offer this week."

In addition to Louisville, Trotter is also talking with Utah State, Drake, San Diego, Florida Atlantic, and Kansas.
