    The kid was a gamer. Very impressed with his run ability. Any team would benefit greatly with him in the lineup. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors.

    I’m confused. Beechwood will be 2A, no?

    I don’t keep up with high school football very much but I noticed there aren’t any teams on this top 5 list located west of I-75 (unless Beechwood is on the left side of the interstate). Is the east section of the state that much stronger in class A than the central or west?

    Not until 2019. 2018 is the final year of the current alignment.

    Not really. District 1 is Crittenden County, Fulton City, Fulton County, and Russellville. District 2 moves east pretty quick with Bethlehem, Campbellsville, Caverna, and Fort Knox. District 3 is Frankfort, Kentucky Country Day, and Louisville Holy Cross, District 4 is northern Kentucky, and Districts 5-8 are all in the east.

    Bottom line, most of the smallest schools in western Kentucky have closed due to consolidation. Many of the smallest schools in eastern Kentucky are still open, in part because transportation is a challenge to consolidation and also because those communities have managed to keep their schools open.

    Agree. Many smaller schools in the East are still solvent at this time for the reasons you mentioned.
    however, there is caution for several small school systems due to a sharp downturn in the coal industry. That industry is making a modest comeback as of now, but is it enough to keep these small schools open ? Time will tell. Anything short of diversification of industry in these communities have to be a concern. One key word you mentioned is "manage". That factor is so important.

    Isnt the Hergott kid from Highlands transferring to Beechwood? If so, QB problem solved for the next 3 years

    Has that been confirmed? I know it was talked about quite a bit, but the Highlands people on here seemed to think the situation was resolved and Hergott would be back in Ft. Thomas this fall.

    Is this Hergott kid related to the former Beechwood QB from the 90's?
