Trinity High School quarterback Nick Petrino will sign a national letter of intent to play at Georgetown College on Wednesday.

"We're excited to have Nick at Georgetown College," said Head Coach Bill Cronin. "He is obviously a great football player but is also an outstanding individual and one that fits the Tiger program."

The signing ceremony will take place at 3:00 p.m. in Trinity's Alumni Hall, which is located at the corner of Shelbyville Road and Sherrin Avenue in the St. Matthews area of Louisville. Members of the coaching staffs and the Petrino family will attend.

In his senior season, the 5-8, 192 pound Petrino, threw for 2,765 yards and 35 touchdowns and led his team to the Kentucky 4A High School Championship with a 41-7 win over Ryle High School. As a junior he passed for a total of 2,891 yards and 27 touchdowns. "Nick is a tremendous competitor," said Trinity Head Coach Bob Beatty. "Like all great athletes, he saw what he needed to do and he found a way to win. He's a winner."

Nick's dad, Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Bobby Petrino and former University of Louisville head coach, was a two-time NAIA All-American quarterback at Carroll College and began his coaching career at his alma mater.

Other tri-state student-athletes Cronin expects to sign on Wednesday include: Kaelin Ammons, a quarterback from Franklin County High; Andrew Breeding, a linebacker from Middlesboro High; Jarad Foglesong a defensive back from Colerain High (OH); Jordan Kramer, a running back/return specialist from Highlands High; Nick Norcia, a tight end from Owensboro Catholic High; Chris Tucker, a strong safety from Bowling Green High; and Donald Walter, a defensive back/return specialist from Mercer County High.
