    I saw on FB that before the game they're going to be having a ceremony honoring all of the players whose jerseys have been retired over the 50 years. Cool idea.

    I have relatives who played against Keith Stowers. Said he was a men amongst boys. I remember watching Mike Caple and Artie Steinmetz play in the 94 state championship too. They were the real deal. Even in a state championship game between the two best teams in the class, those two stood out.

    September 20, 1968. This is a photo taken during the first ever Covington Catholic vs. Highlands football game. The Bluebirds won the game 14-0.

    Despite the loss, Covington Catholic (in their second season of competing in varsity football) held Highlands' high powered offense to a season-low 14 points in a season where they averaged 47 points per game, and finished their season undefeated with a state championship.

    In terms of "skill players", and I hate that term, I'd challenge anyone to name a better all around player than #3 on the scoring list.

    Nice KHSAA article about CovCath and their 50th year of varsity football.

    So far, so good for CovCath football’s 5th anniversary | Kentucky High School Athletic Association
