Nunnsense | Exit Interview With Louisville Running Back Harry Trotter

Louisville Helmet - White

The University of Louisville football team has 5 or 6 guys who could get carries at running back this season. It only seemed natural that one of those guys would transfer to seek more time on the field.

Walk-on running back Harry Trotter announced on Friday, August 17th, that he would transfer.

On August 20th, he announced that he would transfer to Kansas State.

Also on August 20th, I asked Harry for an exit interview. He Kindly accepted and here is our conversation…

CSZ - Again, thank for all your hard work during your time here at Louisville. It is appreciated by more people than you would think. I’m just going to ask you a few questions about your time here and your future.

With 5 or 6 guys probably getting carries in the Louisville backfield, I assume the main reason for the transfer was playing time. Correct?

HT - Yeah I just felt like I could be having a bigger impact elsewhere, and I wanted to spend my last 2 years of eligibility somewhere where I could help a team with a larger role.

CSZ - Who in your family was most influential in your decision to transfer?

HT -  I would say my parents. They have always supported me and have always been behind the decisions I have made. I’m very thankful for everything they have helped me with.

CSZ - Did you choose K-State because of proximity to your home?

HT - I chose K-State because of the opportunity to compete for a starting spot after this season. It’s a great program with a great Coach and It is also closer to home so my family can come to more games. I grew up mostly watching the Big 12 so it will be awesome to play in it now.

CSZ - Is K-State stadium similar to Cardinal Stadium? It looks huge.

HT - Bill Snyder Stadium is kind of similar to Cardinal Stadium. They are both big and they both are great atmospheres to play in.

CSZ - Where was your favorite place to eat in Louisville and what did you like to order there?

HT - I’d have to say Mt. Fugi. I always ordered the hibachi steak and chicken – and it’s hard to beat.

CSZ - At K-State, it appears as though a junior and 2 seniors will be the primary ball carriers this season. Looks like next season you could have a shot at the starting spot. How much did that factor into your decision to pick K-State?

HT -  Yeah that was a big factor in my decision. Also they wanted to get me there this fall and get into things now so that was another big reason I chose K State.

CSZ - I know you were a walk-on at Louisville. Will you be on scholarship or have an opportunity to earn one at K-State?

HT - Yes, I will have an opportunity to earn one at Kansas State.

CSZ - At Fort Scott Community College, you rushed for 503 yards and eight touchdowns. Do you think you can top that in your junior year? I know you will your senior year.

HT -  I hope to top that both junior and senior years and I’m confident I will. As long as I’m helping the team win, then that’s all that matters.

CSZ - Who on this Louisville team is most likely to be seen at Taco Bell after midnight?

HT- Ronald Rudd without a doubt. That’s my dawg!

CSZ - I know you are on the sideline when they play the Van Halen third down music, but do you and your teammates like that music for third down?

HT - Yeah, I definitely heard that a lot this last season and I liked it. I think It gets the fans and defense into It.

CSZ – I’m not so sure it helped last season.

1 more question, if you don’t mind. This is a standard debate question between all of us at CSZ. Is a hot dog a sandwich?

HT - Haha –  I do not believe a hot dog is a sandwich.

CSZ – As you leave, what would you like to say to all of the Card fans? The floor is yours….

HT - I just want to say thank you to Card Nation. You guys are an incredible fan base and you guys welcomed me in with open arms this past year. I will forever be grateful for the love you all showed!


CSZ – Again, thanks so much for your time today and we will be following your career. Best of luck in football and beyond. God Bless…

As Always, GO CARDS!
