    Scott Kunhein, but I don't think that he was even the best lineman in NKY that year. That would have been Kurt Doolin from CovCath. Also, Wooley from Beechwood was better. Kunhein, however, did beat my butt when we played them. I just feel that those guys were better having played against them.

    Hey Rebel, I think you meant Chris Jones from Danville didn't you?

    Jones was sought after by Switzer at Oklahoma and UK's Curci got him instead. He was a High School All-American (Parade) in 1977. He led UK in rushing in '79 if memory serves. Destroyed his knee at Commonwealth Stadium his sophomore year and never played again.

    Couch was on the cover of SI as a high schooler? When? Please provide date because I don't think so.

    Brian Brohm was not a better QB in High School than Tim Couch was IMO. ESPN has Tim as 1 of the top 5 High School Athletes of ALL-TIME. So yea, my vote goes to Couch. I also don't think Brohm will end up in the top 4 in the Heisman like Tim was after his Junior year in college but this is about the High School level so like I already said, I pick Couch.

    He was featured in SI his senior year, but don't believe he made the cover. He might have had a small insert in the corner of the cover.

    In that case, Harp could be the second. He started over half his junior year over Derrick Smith. He was much more physical. Harp would hit you right in the mouth. Thats why the staff was going to redshirt Smith the next year to stagger the two apart, and because harp was going to be the starter. That is why D. Smith went in the draft early. Even though harp was a qb in high school

    Based on high school careers, no question about it, Couch is the quarterback.

    Correct Hatz Thats who I meant. I can remember as a little youngster watching him run the ball for Danville against Boyle.

    Be careful coming up with this team based on how guys did AFTER high school. If the list is for the best KY HS football players ever, then you'd better keep it to considerations of how the guys did in HS, and forget about college/pro successes or failures.

    Well I was just a big kid that always played football behind the goalpost during the football games. Mom hated that all my clothes where always grass stained, and ripped after the high school games. I would like to think that at one time I was little, even if I can't remember it.

    I don't see where either bias could choose Couch or Brohm with "no question." Both were scary good, and recieved national attention for a reason. It's a good toss-up, IMO.
