Scott Kuhn: "I Want To Play!"

Inside the Ville visited with Louisville signee Scott Kuhn following his impressive performance at the Kentucky v. Tennessee all-star game this past weekend.

This past weekend, Louisville signee Scott Kuhn and his fellow Kentucky All-Star teammates defeated their counterparts from Tennessee 28-23, marking the third consecutive year that the Bluegrass State has upended the Volunteer State.

Kuhn, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound tight end, had an impressive outing. The incoming Cardinal recorded four receptions for 86-yards and blocked well for a ground game that surprised its opponents.

"We had a good offensive scheme going," Kuhn said following the game. "We tried to spread the ball around as much as possible. The quarterbacks did a nice job getting the ball to the open guys."

"I like to block and I guess I do all right at that, but I like to receive to," continued Kuhn. "I like to get out and run those routes."

A noticeable trait of Kuhn's which Louisville coaches must love and Cardinal fans will come to enjoy is Kuhn's determination to fight through tackles and gain valuable yards after the catch.

"I like to hit," Kuhn stated.

He proved just that last Friday night in Knoxville. Following each reception, as opposing defenders closed in and attempted to take him down by tackling him around the legs, Kuhn put his head down and forced the issue, gaining extra yardage each time.

Now, as summer gets into full swing, Kuhn will begin preparing to arrive on campus and become a member of the U of L football program.

  • "I think I'll come down a few days during the summer, but I report in August," Kuhn explained. "I am going to run some passing things during the summer."

    One thing is certain, Kuhn hopes to see playing time this fall and with the departure of Thomas Boyce, who would have been a redshirt freshman this fall, the minutes may just be there for him.

    "I want to play," Kuhn said emphatically! "I can bring some balance to the tight end position with blocking and receiving."

    While those game time minutes will be there for the taking, Kuhn's size and talent will be the true reason why he'll likely see action this fall as a true freshman, but he know's that there will be an adjustment period.

    "I'll be a little anxious and a little nervous, but once that first play goes, I'll be alright," said Kuhn.
