Brohm working on his game

After coming in for more of a relief role as a junior, Luke Brohm is working hard to become a complete quarterback for the Tigers.

After coming in for more of a relief role as a junior, Luke Brohm is working hard to become a complete quarterback for the Tigers.

The name Brohm is a well-known one in sports circles throughout Louisville. Most fans know Greg Brohm, former coach and player at Louisville as well as Jeff and Brian Brohm, also former Cardinals. Luke Brohm is their first cousin and like Jeff and Brian before him, he's a quarterback.

Luke, unlike his cousins, is still a high schooler, working to improve his game. "I would say I want to get better at manage the game. I only started four games last year. I want to become a better player," he said.

Saint Xavier isn't a team that has to depend on Brohm's skills because of the level of talent around him. But he does do what's required. "I'd say I'm a pretty good team leader. Everybody trusts me on the team," Brohm said. "I have pretty good arm strength. I am able to run or pass; whatever the situation needs. I am able to run our offense. I've learned a lot from the coaches," he continued.

Brohm saw himself get better every time he got a chance and he gives his teammate credit for that. "When I first got in, I didn't pass as good. I did good running the run plays," he said. "But as I got used to it, I got better. It's all from the support around me. The other players help me look good. It's a team thing," he continued.

Brohm got a chance to visit a few camps this spring. He plans to go to Princeton, but he's already been to Eastern Kentucky, Western Kentucky, Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Middle Tennessee and Akron.

"The first couple of camps, I was kind of getting used to it. When I got used to it, I thought I did fairly well," Brohm said.

"I've heard from a lot of schools. I sent my highlight film out and I've visited Louisville. I visited Cincinnati twice. I've heard from Illinois, Eastern (Kentucky) and Western (Kentucky)," he continued.

Brohm has no offers right now, but he believes that's in part because he didn't play as much last year. But he hopes to make a college choice towards the end of his senior year.

"I want to see what opens up and how things play out," he said. "A large factor in is the academic standing at the school. I'm hoping my football will help me get a good education for free," he said. "Also how the team does and how the season plays out is important," he finished.
