His first football recruiting class is in, and Charlie Strong is happy with his first one at the University of Louisville. The coach was a surprise visitor at a recruiting party sponsored by Louisville Sports Report at the Parrish House, located in the shadow of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. He shared some great insight into his recruitment of Cincinnati stars Dominique Brown and Preston Brown, and you will never guess what his first mission is:

    Excellent video, Charlie! Many thanks to all the attendees at the Parrish House Weds. for what turned out to be a great night. The crowd was nearly capacity and it was nice to meet a lot of posters from this board , as well as cardinalsports.com

    The highlight was when Strong entered the Parrish House. Thanks to Howie at LSR/CSR for inviting him and Rocco Gasparra for bringing him over. A spur of the moment decision.

    He was greeting with rock star excitement when he strolled thru the crowd, delivered an inspiring talk and fielded questions from audience.

    We’re Strong, Charlie….

    I think that Charlie Strong is the breath of fresh air that we needed. Not expecting too much but I think were going in the right direction.

    Thanks for putting this up. What a breath of fresh air. My first UofL game was in 1952 with Johnny U as the qb and I’m just as excited now as I was when I was heading out to that game. The dark days are over!!
