Remember Justin Burke, who was calling signals at the end of Charlie Strong’s first season at the University of Louisville in 2010?
How he threw two touchdown passes in U of L’s comeback 31-28 win over Southern Mississippi in the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, giving Louisville a 7-6 won-loss record and the first winning football season since 2006.
Burke is still very much a part of the football team, serving as a graduate assistant coach with the offense. He’s working toward a Master’s of Business Administration degree on the academic side.
He was awarded the Clark Wood Scholarship during Saturday’s spring football game in recoginition of his contributions.
