    Agreed, but it seems like UC, UL, UK don't like offering local kids. Pretty sure they feel that they only have to offer walk on spots to local kids. Now if they are 4 star, different story. AJ will do very well at Miami and may compete for the job early. I believe they got a grad transfer in from Michigan, but let's face it, he's transferring for a reason. Maybe he didn't play much up there in Ann Arbor.

    For sure in the discussion. Rick Hornsby would have to be another.

    Luke Maile, David Wilson, Jim VonHandorf, Etler, are a few of the names I would put in the best / most accomplished multi-sport of all-time discussion. Best is always debatable, but I'm not sure anyone can top an undefeated, 2 state championship.

    Not a star, per se, in either sport, but Ryan Massie has a Soccer State Championship and a Basketball State Championship -- both single-class State Championship sports. Hugely impressive.

    And to go along with this, I would go out on a limb and say neither one of those teams wins the state without him. Maybe basketball, but his rebounding and toughness was so integral to the team that they very well could have lost to Cooper or done poorly at Rupp.

    AJ is the best athlete in the history of Covington Catholic and its not close. He starred in a Champ Football team and made the state and region all tourney basketball team for the best basketball team in the history of the school. Watching C.J. and AJ over a four day period was as good as it gets.

    Wouldnít make the list. Understand your reason but athlete does not come to mind and was a jv player on state team.

    His brother may have something to say about being the best Cov Cath athlete of all time. Only time will tell

    Wouldn't make my list either, two separate posts, one pointing out Massie had two rings (which is impressive), one that AJ would be on a very short list for greatest all around CovCath athlete. No, of course not, Massie wouldn't be on that list, but his accomplishment was worth mentioning.

    Tough to say that absolutely 100%. I think AJ is one of VERY few whom a reasonable argument could be made

    ...but Rick Hornsby played for the football team in '68 and '69 when it was only one and two years old and barely had its wheels moving, yet still managed to set records that weren't broken until the 2000s. He still is on the record board for most points scored in a single game. He was also a track star on a statewide level, and if I'm not mistaken, was a stud baseball player as well.

    This is an amazing stat/accomplishment!

    As for the GOAT of CCH athletics, he is definitely one of very few in the conversation, Tim Grogan has to be in the conversation. QB of the football team that made it to the semi's of the AAA state tournament and starting SS of the 40-3 2002 baseball state championship team.
