    You've got two MAC players committed.
    Grant Dyer will probably play some level of D1.
    You've got two sophomores that have a good chance to play Division 1.
    Coldiron? Nice looking prospect.

    Yep, sad thing is that except for Central and Belfry run of games a few years ago, we rarely get to see two programs on top of their game at the same time playing head to head.

    That 97 Birds team had high major/SEC/NFL talent. And I don’t think that was even the best HHS team.

    Cov Cath is having a great year. But this talk is bordering on obnoxious.

    Check that, it is obnoxious.
    That would be the 98’ Birds. 97’ team lost to CCH in the mud bowl.

    I know - same NFL guys were juniors. There was some discussion about them as a cautionary tale in earlier part of thread.

    D1- I would say 5 for sure: Mayer, Butler, Coldiron, M Mayer, and Jones. Many others will most likely play in college: Pike, Dyer, McGinness, and a couple lineman.

    Dyer already has 3 D1 offers and others talking to him.

    Exactly!

    I will go even further and say this is a lazy reporter grabbing some low hanging fruit for an article.

    Best in school history is one thing. To say best in NKY history may be a reach. The Lorenzen teams would have an extremely good argument. They beat a lot of teams with their starters in street cloths in the second half pre running clock. Not saying Eddie couldn’t do the same. Always tough to compare eras.

    I understand McGinness wants to play college baseball and Coldiron will get looks in baseball as well.
