    Is there a way to watch the replay? I watched the other games online on the NFHS network app but can’t find a way to watch replays.

    I havent seen anyone mention the CCH quick kick that was blocked and pretty much gave SW a TD - horrible call!

    Two big factors IMO that led
    to the game's outcome:

    1) SW's defense was spectacular, especially their D line

    2) CCH's play calling was atrocious. The coach obviously was not used to playing from behind. And I saw little adjustments from H1 to H2.

    No pick six last year. Not one.
    Your right not pick sixes.
    Fumble and interception. As well as a 3 and out to start the 3rd quarter.

    Does Eddie not call the offense?

    I can't speak to South Warren improvement. However, for Cov Cath, they lost a lot from last year. In addition to 3 year starting QB AJ Mayer who went D1, they lost two way starter Kam Butler who also went D1; two way starter Malachi Pike who signed with Butler; two way starter Grant Dyer who signed with Dayton; shut down corner Adam Schneider who is playing college baseball plus a couple more key starters. Covington Catholic is not nearly as good this year as last, but when you look at their record this year and how good they are, it should tell everyone just how good CCH truly was last year. Last year they basically had a full lineup of future college athletes including almost half their starters being future D1 football players.

    Twice Spurrier threw it over to the sideline with no receiver within 20 yards.
    One thing to note with the high school rules, unless it changed this year, there is no pocket. Therefore, in order to throw it away, there must be a receiver in the area.

    Hard to back to back:

    CCH lost in OT in Final Four after winning b-ball.

    CCH lost on PK in title game after winning state in soccer

    Within yards of repeating in football.

    SW played 2nd half not to lose and almost let CCH take one. Went very conservative with almost none of the passing they were successful with. Eddie never lets up.

    Don't know what SW has in the pipeline, but from a CCH perspective they will be darn good again next year with Mayer and Jones leading the charge. I would love both teams to meet in a "trilogy".

    Yes-SW did nothing on offense in the 2nd half. Their lone score was off a blocked punt that gave them the ball at the 10. Definitely a tale of two halves. If McGinness is blown dead inside the 5 with about 3 minutes to go (judgement call), we may be having a different conversation. That was a great highschool football game.

    No doubt-CCH was way better last year, namely because AJ was more decisive than a 10th grade QB. Jacob made some great throws in the 2nd Half and is a AJ in the making though. CCH will be back next year with ultra-talented classes waiting their turn.
