    They are so good every year because of the NUMBERS........Plain and simple that is the reason..When you have 1500 boys to choose from your going to be good............

    Why not model a league after the CSAA? I'm serious, btw....If sports could be offered at the elementary level, wouldn't that help make the public schools more competitive at every level? Volleyball and football especially.

    Especially if 90% of those have been playing football since 3rd grade, often with many of their teammates.

    Why do you think Highlands is so good every year for being a pretty small school???????Most of the kids have played in the Fort Thomas Junior Football League since 3rd grade.......Makes a big difference..........

    That would be a great place to start. Keep in mind the tradition and backing from PARENTS that help keep things going. Then of course you need quality coaching. I am sure there are guidelines that the CSAA uses to approve a coach. I can only imagine what kind of hoops a prospective coach would have to jump through to get invovled with a public school program. Some years back the publics tried to establish a middle school feeder system but ran into alot of obstacles, coaches being a major hurdle.

    Not at all. A little bird told me that Newburg Road is the dividing line.

    I know it's different for public schools, but it just seems like such a logical step, from my perspective, I mean....

    Could you imagine the teams some of the public schools could have if the top 5-6 players off a Hikes Point team or a Highview team did not scatter and go to 5-6 different high schools? That could be scary.

    Exactly...so..it's not JUST the number of players, it's the level at which those players come to the schools able to play.

    Not JUST the numbers but the NUMBERS still play a VERY major part. The quality and football background of the majority is still huge though.

    Like the public schools need help there. I think the advantage there is the number of playground courts, optimist leagues, etc for basketball. It's not as easy to do for football

    And at the same time throw in the same level of parental support and involvement that backs up the CSAA. Why is there not the same level for the public high schools and the middle school Optimist Clubs football programs?

    Public schools could pick up a kid in the hall that never played organized team basketball and he could play for most HS teams. I am talking about a kid that played regularly at the park or schoolyard. Try that with a football player. I like to think football IS the ultimate TEAM sport because of this. This comment will probably draw some remarks from soccer and baseball enthusiasts but that is my opinion.
