    Talented Junior and Sophmore classes went undefeated last year as Sophs and Frosh, so may be some young kids pushing for playing time. Looking forward to see how we do against Cathedral right out of the gate. Go Tigers!

    I like the addition of Cathedral. Trinity had a good series with them, hopefully X will too.

    Both Trinity and X hosting Indy powers week 0. I Like it!

    I think St. X has the toughest schedule in the state this year, just edging out Trinity's. Though, Fairdale is a bit of a weird choice.

    How does it edge out Trinity?

    For two reasons.

    One, because their weaker opponents are better than our weaker opponents.

    Two, because they have to play Trinity.

    I don't think Butler, Fairdale, or Central, and maybe PRP are "better" than Ballard or Eastern. Trinity has 4 stellar out of state opponents plus Male and X. St. X has done a good job of upping their schedule, and this isn't a bigger stick contest, but they have a ways to go.

    I think the Fairdale game is to give back ups chance to play more.

    PRP has a very good QB returning.

    Well, using Calpreps 2016 data it goes like this:

    #13 PRP* SR=37.1
    #15 Ballard SR=32.7
    #22 Central* SR=28.5
    #44 Eastern SR=18
    #45 Butler* SR=17.8
    #132 Fairdale*SR= -9.5
    #150 Seneca SR= -15
    #157 Jeffersontown SR= -17.8

    Average KY rankings of bottom 4 teams: St. X=55, Trinity=91.5

    Average strength rating of bottom 4 teams: St. X= 18.5, Trinity=4.5

    Trinity doesn't just face the top notch opponents and Ballard/Eastern, we have to consider Jeffersontown and Seneca when determining overall schedule strength.
