    Different eras and different times make comparisons all but imposssible.

    That said, they win out and they would be in the conversation. That conversation can’t happen for a few weeks at earliest. Way too early

    Does a team have to win a championship to be considered the best ever for the school?

    Yes, if the school has multiple championships. Otherwise, they will be known as the best team to never have won a championship.

    Trinity 2011. Undefeated and “national champions”. I can think of 5 guys without trying hard that signed scholarships with D1 programs.

    Yeah that was a pretty stout team. Guessing they could be listed as best Louisville area team right?

    That is correct, but Coldiron will most likely end up playing football.

    Maybe he was just listening to Cov. Cath radio.

    In all seriousness, is AJ Mayer the best QB in Cov. Cath history. Better than McCormick, Dietz, Ellison?

    AJ is great but just like the NFL there are different eras. Paul Darpel was an awesome high school quarterback. They’ve also had Blesser, David Wilson and Grogan. And while not a great quarterback members of the first state team will tell you Bieger was an incredible leader

    Nobody at CovCath is overlooking the 5 out of last 6 champs.

    How can you even consider them the best when they didn't even win state in '97?

    Furthermore, it's not like they were even that good outside of Lorenzen and Smith. Lorenzen would run around in the pocket and was too big to be taken down, and then would just launch the ball 60 yards downfield to Smith or any other receiver that just had to run downfield and catch the ball. I realize that it's not like anyone can do that, but it's also not like it takes a whole lot of skill when your QB can out-throw an entire defense.

    If you ask me, McCormick and Mayer are the top two QBs in Cov Cath history. There are a lot of similarities when you watch them play, actually. I would give AJ the nod over Adam though.

    Agree that it is premature but if they win state they have to be in serious conversation.

    I still think Adam McCormick is the best QB ever at CCH. I watched both Mayer and Adam and I would take Adam.
