More than 80 Cardinals, including a number of incoming freshmen, participated in voluntary workouts on Thursday afternoon.
The rain finally gave way on Thursday afternoon just in time for more than 80 Cardinals to participate in volunatry workouts.
"I think we have improved each and every day that we have been out here," said sophomore quarterback Brian Brohm. "Hopefully it will carry over into the season."
With less than a month until the start of two-a-days, Brohm says that the team is looking forward to putting the pads back on.
"I think everybody is starting to get a bit of the butterflies since the season is approaching," he said. "We can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are fired up for the season coming up."
NOTES:A number of incoming freshmen, including E.K. Sawyer, Darius Mann, Scott Long, Jonathan Holston, Lamar Alston, Lee Sweeney and others began working with their new teammates on Thursday. Brian Roche, who is still nursing an injury, was also on hand and watched as the offensive line worked against the defensive line.
New kickers, Stephen Crepps of Nelson County and Patrick Mossholder of Louisville St. X are both working with the U of L special teams during summer workouts.
Also on hand was former Cardinal strong safety and New York Jets rookie Kerry Rhodes. Rhodes, who is sporting a new Range Rover, will begin training camp on July 29th.
Former U of L quarterbacks Chris Redman, Dave Ragone and Stefan LeFors have all spent time at the football facility this week.
Following practice, Montrell Jones and Kerry Rhodes spent a few minutes attempting to throw the ball further than Brohm. While each tossed multiple balls for over 60 yards, Brohm's were by far the more accurate.
St.X rising junior tailback Vic Anderson made an unofficial visit to Louisville on Thursday afternoon. Anderson currently holds scholarship offers from Louisville and West Virginia.
