  03/26/20 - Corey ReedSr/2021, Louisville, 6-2, 206 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  The coronavirus has impacted Louisville football now, more than just canceling practices. Junior wide receiver Corey Reed Jr. lost his father to COVID-19 on Wednesday morning in Atlanta. Corey Reed Sr. was 43 years old when he died from complications to the disease. Reed Jr., like the rest of his teammates, has been home since the team left for spring break. "My deepest condolences go out to Corey and his entire family," Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said in a statement. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the country to a halt. With over 69,000 people infected in the U.S., as of Thursday afternoon, it has taken the lives of many while forcing businesses to shut down, leaving many unemployed.

Former Kentucky fullback Moncell "Turtle" Allen says he has tested positive for the coronavirus. In an interview with Kentucky Sports Radio last week, Allen detailed feeling sick two weeks ago and testing positive on March 16. He's been quarantined at home since. "You've just got to take it serious, man. A lot of people just want to party, they want to still go out and play, do all the crazy things they've been doing. People need to understand how serious this is. It's not just in China and these other places, it's in the United States, it's in Kentucky," he told KSR. "I'm a prime example of someone people know that has this virus." - Courier Journal

  03/25/20 - Cam DeGeorgerSr/2021, Louisville, 6-3, 290 (DS#66 OG) + More +

  Louisville had three open scholarships in the 2020 class once signing day finished and hoped to land a grad transfer with one of those spots. It accomplished that goal. Cam DeGeorge, an offensive tackle from the University of Connecticut, has committed to Louisville as a grad transfer. DeGeorge, a 6-foot-4, 290-pound tackle, started the last three years at UConn and gives the Cardinals some added depth on the offensive line. The Lynnfield, Massachusets native is the sixth offensive lineman in the class which includes: Trevor Reid, Kobe Baynes, Luke Kandra, Timoty Lawson and Austin Collins. - Courier Journal

  03/20/20 - *Lamar JacksonJr/2018, Louisville, 6-2, 216 (DS#5 QB) + More +

  Lamar Jackson brought the University of Louisville its first and only Heisman Trophy, and now Cardinal fans get to relive that historic season - in bobblehead form. Friday morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead that features the Heisman pose Lamar Jackson once did in his Cardinal uniform. These bobbleheads are being produced by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Louisville Cardinals and NCAA merchandise. The museum says there is also a 3-foot-tall bobblehead of Jackson in the works with expected delivery in July. "Lamar's bobbleheads have been among the most popular we've had over the past year and we kept getting requests for a Louisville bobblehead," National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. "We think this bobblehead of Lamar in the Heisman pose turned out great and will be a fan favorite for Lamar's fans in Louisville, Baltimore and across the country." The bobblehead, of which 2,020 are being produced, is available for pre-order through the company's online store. - Courier Journal

  03/06/20 - Dez FitzpatrickrSr/2021, Louisville, 6-1, 202 (DS#11 WR) + More +

  After Louisville's Music City Bowl win, receiver Dez Fitzpatrick had a decision to make. Did he want to chase his dream by entering the NFL draft, or return to school for his final year? On the surface, Fitzpatrick has all the tools to be an interesting NFL prospect. He's a 6-foot-2 receiver with good hands, runs a high-end 4.3 40-yard dash, is a strong route runner and has a good eye for the ball in the air. But there was more to the decision for the Farmington, Michigan native. Louisville had momentum going into offseason and high expectations for this year. Fitzpatrick's brother, freshman Christian Fitzpatrick, was set to join the team and Dez Fitzpatrick promised his mother he would get his degree, which he's set to receive in May.

Having conversations with his family, wide receivers coach Gunter Brewer and head coach Scott Satterfield, Fitzpatrick thought about every scenario. A week and a half after the bowl game, he decided to return to Louisville for his senior year. He has unfinished business, both on and off the field. "This is where I committed," Fitzpatrick said. "I wanted to win an ACC championship, I wanted to win a national championship. Leaving without that, I just felt like I came to do something." - Courier Journal

  02/27/20 - *Mekhi BectonJr/2020, Louisville, 6-7, 364 (DS#2 OT) + More +

  The big guys made a big statement at the NFL scouting combine Friday night. Wisconsin star Jonathan Taylor ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.39 seconds) despite weighing in as the third-heaviest running back at the combine, and the offensive linemen had a solid showing, led by Louisville's 357-pound Mekhi Becton, who ran a 5.10 time in the 40. Raiders general manager Mike Mayock said on the NFL Network that he was more impressed with Becton's 5.10 than he was with Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, who ran a blazing 40-yard day in 4.27 on Thursday night that was just shy of John Ross's record of 4.22 set in 2017.

"Rich, you love the 4.22. Who's going to beat the 4.22?" Mayock told former colleague Rich Eisen during a visit to the broadcast booth. "I believe him running the 5.51 is more impressive than what the wideout from Alabama, Ruggs, ran yesterday." Other O-linemen who impressed during the first Friday night live workouts at Lucas Oil Stadium were Iowa's Tristan Wirfs, who topped them all at 4.85 seconds in the 40 and dominated the position drills and other tests. - AP College Football

  12/30/19 - Micale CunninghamrJr/2022, Louisville, 6-1, 190 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  Micale Cunningham threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 81 more, and Louisville capped coach Scott Satterfield's debut season by beating Mississippi State 38-28 Monday in the Music City Bowl. The Cardinals (8-5) rallied from a 14-point deficit by scoring 31 straight to finish their big turnaround from 2-10 last season. Louisville also finally beat Mississippi State on the field for the first time in six tries, though the series now is tied 3-3 thanks to a pair of forfeits by the Bulldogs in the 1970s. "We got down 14 points early in the game, and the kids didn't flinch," Satterfield said. "I mean they kept playing, they kept battling. The next thing you know you're right back in the game. We grabbed the momentum and poured it on."

Mississippi State (6-7) had been trying to finish the season with a three-game winning streak for the first time since 2013 and only the third time since the end of World War II. Instead, the Bulldogs go home having lost a bowl game in each of coach Joe Moorhead's two seasons. "This season was a book in and of itself," Moorhead said. "Certainly 6-7 was not the outcome we desired. To get bowl eligible, win an Egg Bowl and have this opportunity to play in a bowl game to me is a credit to these seniors, a credit to these staff and credit to these leaders that we were able to battle through a lot of adversity this season." The Cardinals had four sacks and recovered two fumbles, one returned 31 yards for a TD by safety Khane Pass. Javian Hawkins led Louisville with 105 yards rushing, and he ran for a TD late. The Cardinals outgained Mississippi State 510-366. - AP College Football

  12/30/19 - Javian HawkinsrSo/2023, Louisville, 5-09, 179 (DS#12 RB) + More +

  Javian Hawkins is the big reason why the Cardinals rank 23rd nationally averaging 214.1 yards rushing per game. He set a freshman school record running for 1,420 yards as the Cardinals' first 1,000-yard back since Bilal Powell (1,405) in 2010. Hawkins has six 100-yard rushing games this season, including 233 yards in a win over Syracuse, and already is being mentioned as a Heisman Trophy candidate for 2020. "He's had a special year, no question about it, particularly for a freshman a really special year," Satterfield said. "Overall, I'm praying for just any running back to have a special year, and we've leaned on that." - AP College Football

  12/16/19 - *Mekhi BectonJr/2020, Louisville, 6-7, 364 (DS#2 OT) + More +

  University of Louisville offensive tackle Mekhi Becton will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, the junior announced Monday. Becton also announced that he won't participate in the Music Bowl against Mississippi State on Dec. 30. "I wish Mekhi all the best as he pursues the next chapter in his football career, UofL head coach Scott Satterfield said. "He played a huge role, not only in our turnaround on offense, but within the entire team. He showed how dominating a player he can be with our ability to run the football this season. We look forward to seeing growth as a player and are here to support him as he travels along that path."

Becton, a 6-foot-8, 370-pound junior from Highland Springs, Va., was named the Jacobs Blocking Trophy recipient, the first ever at the school. The junior started 33 games at offensive tackle for the Cardinals and was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Oct. 7 after his performance in the 41-39 victory over Boston College. He graded out better than 80 percent in eight games and registered over 60 knockdown blocks to help the Cardinals finish the regular season at 7-5 and 5-3 in the ACC -- a turnaround of five games from a year ago. - Louisville Football

  Louisville's Scott Satterfield is the Atlantic Coast Conference's coach of the year. In voting results announced Thursday, Satterfield received 23 of a possible 60 votes, with 17 votes for Virginia's Bronco Mendenhall and 15 for Clemson's Dabo Swinney. In his first season with the Cardinals, Satterfield led them to a 7-5 finish, a 5-3 record in ACC play and a second-place finish behind No. 3 Clemson in the Atlantic Division. Louisville was picked to finish last in the division after firing Bobby Petrino while finishing 2-10 and losing all eight league games in 2018. - AP College Football

  2019 JACOBS BLOCKING TROPHY AWARD WINNER: University of Louisville offensive tackle Mekhi Becton has been voted the winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford announced Monday. Louisville has won the honor for the first time since officially joining the league in 2014. "I'm really proud of Mekhi and extremely happy for him because of all the hard work he put into this season," Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said. "Mekhi has had a tremendous year and deserves this outstanding recognition as one of the top blockers in this prestigious conference. He has been a leader for our offensive line and our offense as a whole, and to be recognized for his accomplishments by members of this league is a great honor for Mekhi. To be the first Louisville player to win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy is truly a testament to type of person and player Mehki has been this season."

Becton, a 6-foot-8, 370-pound junior from Highland Springs, Va.,, has started 33 games at offensive tackle for the Cardinals and was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Oct. 7 after his performance in the 41-39 victory over Boston College.
