Maurice Urrutia hopes to join Cardinals

Former all-state performer at Fern Creek High School watched the Cardinals Thursday practice

Former Fern Creek High School All-Stater Maurice Urrutia, who had hoped to join the Louisville program as a strong safety in January, attended the Cardinals Thursday practice session.

An unfortunate incident outside a niteclub which resulted in him being shot in the arm and back forced his plans to the sideline. However, it appears the plans are simply on hold.

Urrutia, the younger brother of sophomore receiver Mario Urrutia, plans to enroll at U of L in June with hopes of joining the team for the 2007 season.

As a senior in 2004, Urrutia totaled 35 receptions for 694 yards and 4 touchdowns, while also leading the Tigers in tackles and recording five interceptions.
