    But, back to the original thread....I totally understand where snakesnot is coming from, but Trinity is on a whole different level.

    Very valid points made, though.

    Sorry for the rant above, having been involved as both a player and coach in indepdenent and "county" (rural areas mind you) school, there is a difference for the large majority.

    Yes, they are independent. Was pointing out some of the reasons these public independent schools are successful, ei beechwood and HHS. My point being, the kids leave these other districts to play at these schools and not vise versa. Hence, the reason Lloyd is struggling. Lloyd's middle school team has been very good recently. Their youth league has always been very competitive. Half the coaching staff at beechwood, Lloyd grads lol. Or it was. That's for another post.....

    Listen, I'm not advocating closing em down. I believe parents or the kids should play where they want to. It sure would be interesting though if these kids had to stay put.

    Sounds like Snake should have just said Mayfield and Danville. Both rural towns where the options to go else where are limited as is the number of kids. Beechwood and other metro area programs certainly are fortunate to benefit from their location. That said, Beechwood and of course FTH accomplishments are also incredible.

    To the topic, T is in a class of its own and what they have done is simply amazing by any standard anywhere.
    Could they up and move their school to Danville or Mayfield and still enjoy their success? of course not on the scale they have enjoyed. Could they move to Ft. Mitchell and do so? maybe
    Equally impressive and to many more so in a different way is what Mayfield and Danville have been able to do consistently for decades. Both have managed to just win win win with very few bodies to draw from. Truly incredible, especially given that they have done so for decades

    No hate, but everyone knows Trinity wins because they have a large pool of boys and most of the better football players in Louisville choose to go there. The more they win, the more the good players want to play there. No problem. Could Trinity win the titles in the smaller class's if they just had 175 total boys to choose from? Of course we will never know but to say that Trinity is any more of a "dynasty" than some of the other programs in the state that win state titles regularly is absurd. Trinity is like a great white shark swimming in Kentucky lake.

    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".

    Do you always throw out baseless accusations?

    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.
