Mike Rocco Likes Louisville Football

With the opening of practice just around the corner, coach Steve Kragthorpe appears to hitting his stride on the recruiting trail.

Another quarterback commitment for the University of Louisville football team, the latest one coming from Mike Rocco, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound pro-style signal caller from Liberty  Christian Academy in Virginia.

Football bloodlines are fertile in the Rocco family. His father Frarnk Rocco, Jr. is a former Penn State quarterback. His brother Danny Rocco has been head coach at Liberty University for three years.

He had a passing completion percentage of 73.4% as a junior, completing 130 of 177 attempts, chalking up 28 touchdowns.

Smart, too, with a perfect 4.0 grade point average as he enters his senior year of high school.
