    As we get ready for the start of the 2013 high school football season, we thought we'd take a look back at the best teams from the Gridiron Glory era (2002-2012) -- and let you decide which team was the best.

    2011 Dresden (12-3, TSSAA " Class 2A Runner-Up)
    2011 Mayfield (14-1, KHSAA Class 1A Runner-Up)

    This is today's matchup, these 2 teams played a scrimmage game that Mayfield totally dominated but obviously Dresden improved greatly by the end of the season

    Interesting tournament field. I would say Tilghman from '03 and Henry County from '11 are the two strongest teams.

    That Tilghman Team was loaded with talent. They just ran into a very disciplined and tough Boyle County team.

    I have to go with 2002 Mayfield but I'm a little partial, the whole field is strong and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top

    I have never heard the term Gridiron Glory Era and was just curious why it's called that?

    It is just a local news programming sport's segment on during football season. Not the best of coverage but they do as well as they can.

    Great defensive team. The best of this era in Mayfield history. Of the Mayfield teams listed, I would say they would be the best suited to take on larger teams.

    What state are the non-Kentucky teams from? Is that Illinois?

    I just don't feel like thinking about geography today.

    I disagree, in my opinion, they do a better job covering HS football than 90% of the stations out there. They feature weekly interviews and provide a Fri night highlight show with footage from all the local games. I'm not sure what else one could expect and I feel we are lucky to have them in this area. They certainly have provided Mayfield with great coverage over the years always sending a crew to follow the Cards in the playoffs even if they are playing as far away as Beechwood.

    Their football coverage is great. Wish they would cover basketball on Friday nights the same way.

    They do tremendous with what they have to work with. I applaud their efforts to conduct interviews and promote teams. The Friday night spot is tough to put together from a local news perspective because they do not have the resources to show any better highlights than what they do. To me they struggle more with their graphics posting incorrect scores and being behind in that respect. I try to catch it every Friday during the season.
