    1996 had as good of a collection of D-1 talent as a whole as any All-A I can remember
    UHA-Barnes, Victor, Swanagam, and Michael Forrest (MVP),
    LexCath had David Graves (Shawn Fields was injured and didnt plain LexCath's first round loss to Owen Co)
    Paintsville-the eventual '96 state champs, but got knocked out early in the state All-A by Harlan, had VanHoose and Tackett with a strong supporting cast.
    Owen County had Jason Sharp who could have played D-1 but went on to play baseball at EKU, he was the all time leading scorer at Owen despite missing his entire junior year due to a knee injury, a record that stood until very recently when a certain Carson Williams came along.

    Saw Alvin Sims score 38 against Lexington Catholic at Rupp. That was probably the best individual performance I've seen at the All "A" state.

    Heston Beverly and Cavanaugh Trent (Dilce Combs) vs. PJ Warlick (Fulton County) in 1993 was a classic.

    Didn't know they ever held All A games at Rupp.

    This was pretty easy. Both the video and the image are from different All A games.

    A player from my home school, Jeff "Moose" Moore, has the most points scored in an All A state tournament. He scored 115 points vs Lexington Catholic, Harlan, Maysville, and University Heights as he led Owsley County to the 1990 runner-up at Memorial Coliseum. He was named MVP of the tournament.
    He also has the record for most free throws totals made in a tournament, and held the rebound record for many years before it was finally broken. He went on to play at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida and has his jersey retired at that school. He is now a pilot for United Airlines.
    Moose was named First Team All State for the '89-90 season in the Lexington H-L and the Louisville C-J.
