Page 2 of If Trinity had 40 to 50 boys in each class to to field a high school team each season I doubt if they would have more success as these teams have had. Trinity is blessed with being in Louisville and having a large number of boys to choose from. Trinity also benifits from not being in a great high school football state. Some small schools that produce good and great teams every year with small enrollment are more impressive than the few big schools that have a large pool of boys every year... 57 comments | 1616 Views | Go to page 1 →

    ^ What's the price to attend Mayfield, Beechwood, or Danville? What's the price at Trinity?

    I'd like to ask some of those players what they actually paid to go there. LOL

    Not defending T's honor or any of that for obvious reasons but the forum kind of irked a nerve. If it was no problem you wouldn't have made a forum downing trinity and saying how you aren't impressed. Then to pinpoint trinity seems a bit like "hating". The t folk didn't say they were any Better than any of the schools you chose to compare, but something inside you made you feel you were inferior to T thus creating this forum. I have a strong dislike for T for the record.

    Well why don't you promote your school rather than demote the superior program.

    You have to admit that Trinity is a dynasty. I'm sure "Dynasty" has different definitions to different people, as it pertains to football powers, some may think a team that has 25 consecutive winning seasons a dynasty, or a team that has 20 District Championships in 25 years, or a team that is routinely in competition for a State Championship, or a team that is commonly expected to win the State Championship. I don't think of Dynasty as necessarily THE best team in the state, I think you could have multiple dynasties in the state.

    It's just a terminology thing, for example the local newspaper commonly refers to Raceland as a "Class 1A Power". Now I know most Beechwood and Mayfield fans would drop their chulupa if they heard that, but "a power" is not necessarily "the power".

    I am all for discussing the history of great football programs but this is just ridiculous. All the programs mentioned in the title are outstanding football programs. How is someone going to accurately compare a program like Beechwood with a program like Trinity? They are at opposite ends of the enrollment spectrum, play against very different opponents, and draw from very different populations/communities. The only similarity I can see is that both have been successful at what they do.

    I see the point, but I can't make myself agree completely. I can't bring myself to take away from what Trinity has accomplished as a program.
    Trinity has accomplished great things with their football program. I'm just sayin the small schools do the same thing but with less.

    I won't drop the name directly, but have you ever heard of a little-known player from Kentucky named who plays for the Chicago Bears these days? He went to Male and wasn't so bad in college either. He wanted to attend Trinity and the reason he didn't was financial. His family was unable to get enough student aid to afford it. Believe me when I say that many a Shamrock would love to have seen what he and Brohm could have done at the high school level together. As it is there was never the opportunity until college. If he couldn't get a free ride to Trinity no one could.

    So you are basically saying that since 1968 Trinity has always hsd about 1400 boys and a constant enrollment disparity? Far be it from me to call your stance the epitome of foolishness. I do however find the substansiveness in the totality of your thesis to be somewhat embryonic.

    And since football is (over) classified, aren't the small schools in question also competing with other schools doing so with less? I'm not sure why enrollment matters at all since all the schools compete with similar sized schools? If NCC was playing up and winning 5A every year, I'd be on board with the "doing the same thing with less arguement." Everyone plays schools mostly their size.

    Again, not sure of the point of the thread. I can tell you this though, give Trinity whatever number of boys you want and if they keep their coaching staff, they win state at the a very high rate at whatever level.

    Conversely, put their coach at any school in the state except one, and the program improves immediately. They have the best coach in the state. Look at the numbers since he's been there and the numbers prior to his arrival. Give credit where it's due.

    From the start he's just been hating. Naming trinity as the top dynasty struck a nerve in his body. And @snake I can guarantee you, the small schools aren't doing the same thing. In all honesty, right now no one is.

    You might want to think again on who has struck a nerve.

    A lot of programs in the state of KY could take 1400 boys and do what Trinity does. All you have to have is the right mix of boys with good coaching (which Trinity has) and you got yourself a state championship team .
    Trinity is not unique....just big

    UK#1FAN, is that you? Look snake, I get your point but you should go back and read your posts. You say you aren't hating but have shown a lot of emotion. It's understandable as we all are emotionally attached to our schools but lets keep things in perspective here. Before you defame the character and reputation of an outstanding program, maybe type what you want to say while your upset in an email to yourself. Read it tomorrow, and if you still think its a good idea to send, then do it. I wish your team luck this year and hopefully we'll see you in December in BG.
