The fact that Will Stein isn’t given much of a chance to quarterback the University of Louisville football team may say more about the ups and downs of Kentucky high school football than it does about Will Stein.
He’s a product of Trinity, the same school that sent Brian Brohm and Jeff Brohm to Louisville, two of the Cardinals’ best-ever quarterbacks. The Brohms led Trinity to multiple state championships.
Will Stein also led Trinity to a state title, the Class 6-A state championship in 2007, in his only season as a starter. Along the way he completed 255 of 360 passes for 3,697 yards and 54 touchdowns while throwing just seven interceptions.
Most notably, he broke former U of L quarterback Brian Brohm’s school record for TD passes and is second behind Brohm’s 3,777 yards in 2002.
One of Stein’s most memorable performances came in a regional final, in which he threw six touchdown passes against Lexington Henry Clay. Here are video highlights from that game:

Trinity, despite its incredible success over the years, has produced only two Kentucky Mister Football winners — Jeff Brohm in 1988 and Brian Brohm in 2003.
This year’s U of L roster includes four former Shamrocks — running back Blayne Donnell, defensive back Agyei Williams, offensive lineman Alex Kupper and Will Stein.
