Joei Fiegler ready to perform at Cards QB camp

Posted Jun 2, 2005

Joei Fiegler, possibly the top quarterback prospect in the state of Tennessee, will spend the majority of this weekend visiting U of L, touring the facilities and participating in the quarterbacks - receivers camp.

Last month first introduced you to Alcoa, Tennessee quarterback Joei Fiegler, when he called Louisville his current "number one" school. We caught up with Fiegler again as he prepares to make the four hour drive to the River City this weekend to participate in Bobby Petrino's QB/WR camp.

"I'm really excited for this camp," Fiegler said. "I've been looking forward to going up there."

While still seemingly under the radar, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound quarterback has already displayed the type of poise, arm and leadership that will certainly draw a number of scholarship offers throughout his senior season.

Last fall Fiegler, who holds an offer from Vanderbilt, threw for 2,418 yards and 28 touchdowns, helping his Alcoa teammates win the Class 2A State Championship.

He continues to claim Louisville as his clear leader and said that he recently received good word from the Cardinal coaches.

"Coach Levine called my coach the day after I talked to you with some good news," Fiegler explained. "He told my coach that Coach Petrino watched my video and that he really liked it."

While Louisville has yet to extend an offer, they were impressed enough to ask him to arrive a day prior to the camp.

"They asked me to come up a day early, so I'll be there for two days," Fiegler said. "They wanted me to see all of the facilities and meet the coaches before the camp."

Fiegler, who stated earlier that he would like to commit early, hopes that a strong camp performance this weekend will keep the good news coming.

"I think they might offer if I do well at the camp," he said.

His current list of favorites are Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina and Vanderbilt.
