Phil Simms in Louisville?

Louisville native and Super Bowl MVP quarterback Phil Simms visited the U of L football complex on Thursday and Friday.

Louisville native Phil Simms often returns home to the River City to spend time with family and friends and while family always comes first, the former New York Giant quarterback found time to visit the University of Louisville football complex during his trip this past week.

Simms, who's son Matt took over the starting quarterback duties at Don Bosco Prep last season as just a sophomore, was joined by Don Bosco head coach Greg Toal. has learned that Simms was interested in seeing the Cardinals facilities, as well as spending some time with head coach Bobby Petrino and his staff.

With his son Matt, who will be one of, if not the top-rated passer in 2007, already expressing interest in the Cardinals program, it is safe to say that Simms was in town to get an idea of what U of L and Petrino have to offer as a possible college destination.

Petrino's recent group of U of L signee's included two Don Bosco athlete's, Darius Mann and Brian Roche, and the Cardinals have already offered senior-to-be Brian Callahan, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver.

Simms and Toal spent the majority of Thursday, as well as part of Friday morning, at the U of L complex and ITV understands that both left impressed.
