    Yes we’re very good. Region in 39, 40, 44. State champions in 1939 and we’re ranked one in the state in 44. All 5 of the starters were given scholarships to UK in 44. Clyde Cooper played at UK and went to play for the Chicago Staggs and Nashville Vols. Albert Cummmins played baseball and basketablk at Uk after serving in the army for two years. And played baseball at Michigan State.

    I remember Freddie Hale. He was a scoring machine. If the Demons scored 60 points, he would have 45 of them.

At that time he was probably 52 and had bigger arms than anyone in the gym. Thanks for sharing that piece. Dale said he played some softball but was humble and never really bragged about things he obviously could've bragged about.

    I believe one of the Hiltz Boys from Covington Catholic was trained by Coach Frederick and he was a walk on at Notre Dame. I think he’s a Blue Angel pilot today. Pretty Special kid. Had a buddy whose son graduated from Covington Catholic and said he gave one of the best speeches he ever heard at graduation. Cool stuff

    I believe you are talking about Greg Hiltz and if I am not mistaken he went to the US Coast Guard Academy from CCH.

    The Highlands contingent:
    Draud played at Vandy
    Any others?

    And Boone County:
    Dinn played at Wright State

    Although not "my school" as the title says. This player who has a birthday today (11-2) is the only person to ever win a championship in the NCAA, NBA, and ABA.
