    That's funny.

    Reusch and Powers have a lot of talents besides their quarterbacking ability, and Jacob has showed the most promise as far as pure quarterbacking talent. I think Caleb Jacob will end up starting.

    I just don't think there will be anyone better in 5A. Bowling Green has talent, but is coming off of a disappointing year and a coaching change. Who would you say is the favorite?
    I don't think Bowling Green's coaching change will be that big a sea change, but I guess we will see. I just figure that CCH will be a toss-up for favorite every bit as much as Bowling Green and South Warren. Maybe even South Oldham and Madison Southern too, who knows. I don't know how their teams look after graduating last season's seniors.

    That us pretty impressive. It takes a lot for a Sophomore to start at qb physically and mentally.

    Yes it is. But Mayer and Kees both proved it is very doable.

    I have always liked watching Covington Catholic’s brand of football. For a few years they seemed to loose their edge to Highlands H.S. Now they are back, and back in a very big way. Can some of the more devoted fans of Covington Catholic explain to a casual fan what accounts for this big turnaround.

    Coaching is the big thing. Eviston is a great coach and put together a good staff.

    Assistant Coaches
    Terry Brown - Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers
    Sam Beiting - Defensive Backs
    Benji Patenaude - Wide Receivers
    Lee Teegarden - Defensive Line
    Lynn Ray - Linebackers
    Ashley Moser - Running Backs
    Bryson Warner - Special Teams Coordinator
    Tyler Gross - Offensive Line

    The coaching staff is definitely a major piece of it, as is a youth league that has matured into a pipeline for a "Covington Catholic system". Cov Cath's football system used to begin in the 9th grade, and now it begins in the 4th grade.

    It also didn't hurt that we had a once-in-a-generation caliber coming together of talent for the 2017 season.

    Tyler Reusch is a solid football player, but his passing game is weak, so it would be counterintuitive for CCH's offensive DNA to put him in and cripple our ability to pass the ball to Coldiron, Coburn, Summe and Mayer.
    His passing game is weak? He can throw the ball. Saw him at a camp this summer and he did really well throwing the ball. The QB who will be a sophomore seems a little slow and unathletic. As a Beechwood guy I hope they go with the youngster. He won’t be able to navigate pocket as well and isn’t a threat to run.

    Let's just say this...and this is by no means intended to say that Tyler isn't a great athlete. After all, he is being talked to by (at least) Austin Peay, Ohio University, Middle Tennessee, and Morehead State. Covington Catholic had running clocks on every team they played from the Commonwealth of Kentucky last season. Tyler Reusch was the #2 quarterback last season, and was brought into the game every time after Cov Cath got the running clock going (if not sooner). Unless I'm mistaken, the only time Tyler didn't see the field during a varsity game was against Kings, OH. Even so, Cov Cath only threw the ball once while Tyler was in at quarterback. Conversely, they threw it mutiple times while RB Casey McGinness was behind center in the Wildcat, as well as throwing multiple times in the Bullitt Central game while they had freshman quarterback Caleb Jacob in the game at quarterback.

    I think The Oracle was a off-base saying Tyler's passing game was "weak"...I think it would be more accurate to say say that Tyler's passing game is "not as strong as the other quarterbacks in the Covington Catholic system". Caleb Jacob (who led the Covington Catholic freshman team to a 15-1 record) can throw and run, both. Tyler is a solid quarterback in the pocket, but passing is not his biggest strength. If you would like to see Caleb as the starting quarterback, I predict that you will be getting your wish. But make no mistake, Tyler will be starting somewhere on the field for Cov Cath next season.

    I'll also add, I really hope that freshman kicker David "Trey" Gronotte is back this season for the Colonels. Cov Cath has had an obvious weakness on the kicking front in the last handful of years. Grant Dyer definitely did a very suitable job, but there was no doubting that Gronotte, as a freshman, did a great job last season coming in as a starting kicker in his first year of high school - and with no prior experience kicking a football. David had 88 points last season kicking, and I believe he only missed on 2 or 3 attempts.

    I was going to say that earlier today. Their weakness is the kicking game. Maybe they can borrow a soccer player on Friday nights.

    I'm not against having a second kicker in the pipeline, but Trey is a very solid kicker. I believe he set the school's single season record for PATs last season with 82 or 83 (I'm not 100% on my kicking stats). Previous school record was 57, set by Evan Talkers in 2011.

    Kicking game is fine. Kid has gotten bigger and his leg has gotten stronger.
