It is one of the great things about small town football, it really gets the loyalty and backing that the city schools tend to lack, not because they aren't proud of their school, but it doesn't tend to represent the comunity in the way that say Belfry does the local community or St.X and Trinity do with the Louisville Catholic Community. It is not an excuse we should be able to do alot, and we do, but it is not the same thing.

    While I agree with what you say, you also need to look at it like this - our school has graduated anywhere from 250 students(1980's) to 165(current) students in the past 30 years, you guys have averaged what, about 400 students that entire time? How many CEO's from companies are your alumni? While we have little competition your sheer numbers make up for it.

    Ask and yeah shall recieve.

    Actually, Manual graduates over 300 a year... the atrition rates are high, and every class is much smaller than when it started.

    And Manual graduates a lot of artists and actors and professors... not so many CEOs.

Compare that to schools like Trinity or x where the alumni are still out in force many long years later. I get the feeling that that loyalty is still there in the more rural counties.
    That is true. While that is not to say that there aren't some out there giving and doing for the public schools it is a different dynamic. Which is what I have been trying to say, it is not impossible, it is just alot more complicated than simply going out and making the ask. There are advantages in that reguard to being from a private school or living in a community where one out of four folks went to your school.

    First of all I never gave up. And I am not for prop 20, as I have stated 50 times or more in this thread. You have not read this thread and are leaping to incorrect assumptions.

    Scott is on the HIGHER $$$$ side of Lexington, has Toyota, etc.....They have it nice..
    Well, Henderson, except they don't have the Toyota plant, but I don't see that the Toyota plant in Princeton, IN has done anything for Princeton and Gibson Southern.

    Dear Guru,
    I, for one, do not blame the public schools for being upset that private schools are able to take students from any part of Kentucky. Private schools must take students from wherever they can get them. Trinity just increased its student body to 1400 students last year. I think the proposal will pass and Male, Highlands, Manual and many other public schools will reap the benefits. BUT the KHSAA is wrong if they think most of the private schools will stay in the KHSAA.
    Why would the private schools stay in the KHSAA? As long as the private schools in Kentucky can play private schools outside of Kentucky there would be no need to play the public schools. You must remember that private schools have "to be income producing" and are not able to exist unless tuition, alumni donations and sports revenues come through the doors.
    I think this proposal is a good one.
