    They should be pretty good again this season probably right behind Scott County again this season. What will be key is how the new QB blends in with the returning players. If he can throw the ball out there Douglass is very talented at the WR position. Also if they have someone who can take over running the ball the way that Jefferson Harkless did last year they will be tough to handle.

    Pretty sure D-I lineman recruit Walker Parks, who holds an offer from Notre Dame IIRC, transferred to Frederick Douglass from Lexington Christian.

    Parks will help their line.

    Looking at their Hudl roster they look like they have a lot of big boys and a lot of skilled kids.

    Also Dekel Crowdus he was a standout big play wide-receiver last year as a freshman. He has already received offers from Western Michigan and Kentucky.

    For now. I'm sure there will be an appeal.

    Interesting. Is the KHSAA changing policy? Going from private to public has been pretty easy the last few years. Or did multiple players leaving one school for another make them get tough?

    Some of you knowledgeable F D fans tell me how a relative new school got so blessed with so much football talent ? It usually takes 8-10 years for a new school to make a mark. F D arrived on the scene ready to rock and roll.

    I know nothing about FD. Collins is an example of a new school that didn’t need to wait 8-10 years to be good. Great Crossing I doubt will have the success FD has had but they have the potential to be better than average right out the gate.

    Easy answer there - talent. If you have talented athletes, you win. Did Fayette Co. schools have any rules on how students matriculated to F D? If they said that if you are in that district then you are going to F D, then you could have an instant winner if you get talented upper classmen from day 1.

    Cooper High School in N. Ky. played in the 5A championship 4 or 5 years after opening, so you can be a winner quickly if you have talent in your district. If Boone Co. Schools had told all the seniors and juniors in Cooper's district that they had to attend Cooper year one, I think they would have been a winner even sooner, maybe even year one.

    I have heard today that there was actually 4 players who were ruled ineligible by the KHSAA. All four appealed and a federal judge overturned all 4's ineligibly. The KHSAA has 15 days I believe from the order to make the transfers eligible. Then they will have to meet the 11 calendar days of practice before playing. They could be eligible for the first game but probably the 2nd game if the KHSAA delays making them eligible. They should be a big help for the Broncos.
