Tonight, The University of Louisville’s Men’s Basketball team picked up a big time local recruit. David Johnson, out of Trinity High School, gave Coach Rick Pitino his first big commit of 2019’s recruiting class. He is rated the number 29 player in the class. David reminds me of a Terry Rozier with bigger size.
Hopefully you know by now that Trinity QB and Louisville football commit Reggie Bonnafon has been doing a Senior Year Journal for us here at CSZ. He has told us about the Elite 11 Camp, attending UofL’s camp, and he previewed their scrimmage game last week against Fort Thomas Highlands. Well now it is regular season time! Trinity is ranked #2 in the Nation in USA Today, so as always, expectations are high for the Shamrocks. Here is what Bonnafon had to say in this edition of his Senior Year Journal…
Cards fans will have a chance to see future Louisville QB Reggie Bonnafon play on TV in the opening game for Trinity High School. They will host Nashville (Tenn) Ensworth is at 8 pm this Friday and will be televised on ESPNU! USA Today has ranked Trinity as the #2 team in the nation, and Ensworth is ranked 18th in that same poll.
Trinity has won three straight Class 6-A state championships. Ensworth went 13-0 last season and won their third straight Division II-AA state championship.
In last week’s 48-21 victory over Fort Thomas Highlands in a scrimmage, Bonnafon completed 22-28 passes for 377 yards and 4 touchdowns.
In case you did not know, 2014 Louisville QB commit Reggie Bonnafon (Trinity) has agreed to do a Senior Year Journal for CSZ. If you missed his first two entries, he wrote about the Elite 11 Camp and about attending UofL’s camp. In this edition, Bonnafon talks about the hard work he and his teammates have put in this summer and how ready he is to put that on display.
Future Cardinal Reggie Bonnafon and the Trinity Shamrocks will open their season on ESPNU according to Jason Frakes of the Courier Journal. The Shamrocks will play Ensworth (TN) on August 23rd with kickoff scheduled for 8PM. Ensworth is the 3 time defending 2A State Champions in the state of Tennessee and we all know the success Trinity has had in the state of Kentucky in recent years. This will be a good chance for Cards fans to see Bonnafon in action as he takes over as the full time starter for the Rocks. Make sure to follow Frakes @KyHighs for more info.

When the Miami (OH) Redhawks come to town today, they will bring with them a former runner up for Mr. Kentucky Basketball! Josh Sewell wears #1 and is a 6’5 junior from right here in Louisville, KY. He played his high school ball at Trinity, and was a two-time all-state selection. He is Trinity’s all-time leading scorer with 1,485 points and was the 7th Region Player of the Year his senior season. Also as a senior, he averaged 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists per game.
When you are a Quarterback at Trinity High School, that comes with a lot of expectations, and probably some high-caliber college offers by the time you get to be a senior. Reggie Bonnafon is only a junior, and will be a backup this season, but next year he will start, where every year the expectation is a state title. Even without beings the starter yet, he already has college offers. Reggie took some time to talk with us at CSZ about different things from following in the footsteps of other big name Trinity QBs, his college offers, and more…
