    I don't want folks to take this the wrong way........
    Amount of talented/impact players, like in the past.

    You are right! Forgot about that NewCath squad. Was that the infamous losing record team that beat them in the state? You are 100% right!

    Did Wilfong lead NewCath to the baseball state title his senior year in the 70s? I can't remember? Know it's another sport, but Wilfong was also a great basketball player.

    I had forgot about it. Talk about bad luck of the draw in the Sweet 16! Thanks for reminding me. I think

    NewCath had a Pangallo (Jimmy?) leading that team, right? That was after the Cowens twins had graduated if I remember.

    So let me get this straight....Just because its Ronnie Dawn's grandson he will be 6'6. Who is the Daddy and how tall is he? As far as Iles goes I know he has an Uncle on the mom's side who was 6'5 but not sure about the other side. There is already an Iles in 10th grade...is he expected to grow to 6'6 or is the height clearly set aside for the 6th grader. I'll hang up and listen.

    So NCC has only won the 9th Region once since 1976? So in a 40 yr span only one time. That is hard to believe.
