    Was this team the one with Gino, and MLB that went to Purdue.

    If so I stand by my claim.

    Best in KY that year or best in KY all time? Or did you mean NKY?

    I think Dixie Heights beat Trinity in the playoffs around 2003.

    No, can’t remember the year it was around 06, they had a D that would have stopped this offense in my opinion.

    CCH 2006 had three losses. They gave up 229 points. They scored 495.

    CCH 2017 was undefeated. They gave up 116 points. They scored 679.

    True but I watched the worst Kings team in 4-5 years hang with 2017 CCH. 2017 was the perfect situation for CCH and they were very good.

    Give Kings credit, they had a solid game plan. CovCath still managed to win the game by 21 points, which was King's worst loss of the season. CovCath played nearly all of the game without their starting left tackle and had to move linemen around to compensate. As most teams are, CovCath was better at the end of the season than at the beginning, when the Knights played them.

    Which is better:

    A. Playing very competitive teams all season long and perhaps losing or barely winning a few games, and winning a state title

    or

    B. Playing not very competitive teams and beating the pants off of most of them, and winning a state title.
    Per CalPreps, CovCath played the 12th most difficult schedule in the state last year, and the most difficult in 5A.

    Best team in school history? Yes

    Best team in NKY history? Maybe... is it between them and '98 Highlands that had Lorenzen?

    It's not difficult to argue, if you understand that one of, if not the most talented teams of all time was Paducah Tighlman '87/'88 teams. They had All-Americans, All SEC, all everything players. The kid from Trinity that was so good this year (I saw his hudl film, he was great). Paducah Tighlman had 4 of him and a pair of LB's that went to USC and Mich St. Literally, the talent and speed of this team was off the charts.
    The argument is the '87/'88 CCH TEAM beat them twice. I'm not saying they are better. I'm saying it is not difficult to make a logical comparison and don't be so fast to say "for sure."
    Similar to Highlands, they had some incredibly talented teams that would be interesting to hear comparisons of just which was the best.

    I tend to agree with Lynn Ray, who said the 2017 team is the best in school history.
