    Maybe I am missing seeing it, but how about Sonny Collins at TB, probably the greatest TB from a Kentucky High School (Madisonville) and played at Kentucky University (UK).

    That's true definitly wasted talent he went to Eastern but never played a down. I also believe he could have played on Sundays.

    Brian still needs to make the NFL. To start the comparisons to Couch.

    To me in or after high school Shaun Alexander is the greatest football player ever to come from KY.

    Did Jay Jacoby (OL)play in KY
    I think you're talking about Joe Jacoby. Yes he's from the Louisville area, not sure which high school but also was a standout for Louisville in college. Went on to have a great career as a Hog for the Redskins. Another great from the Louisville area that comes to mind is Howard Schnellenberger from Flaget

    Its hard to beat 3 straight titles for Brohm, not many hs qb's can claim that. Sure Couch's numbers were better but where are his rings?

    Hilarious, doesn't give 3 titles in a row much credit
    Couch was on the cover too....uuuhhh no he wasn't
